According to the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened at about 3:32 PM. Due to circumstances still under investigation, Martinez-Huertas got pinned and crushed by a mechanical arm on the truck.
 
At about 4:22 PM, a passerby noticed the accident and immediately called 911. Deputies arrived and found Martinez-Huertas dead at about 4:26 PM.
 
Gilton Solid Waste Management continues to investigate the cause of the fatal incident. They suspect that Marinez-Huertas fell in while trying to retrieve a trash can inside the hopper.
