    A man died Tuesday morning after police say he was pinned to a wall by a semi-truck in Seattle's SoDo neighborhood. 

    Before 10:45 a.m., crews responded to the Goodwill store at 6th Avenue South and South Holgate Street after reports of a man pinned between a truck trailer and the wall of the building.

    Investigators said a delivery truck driver reportedly backed a trailer into a loading dock when the truck struck a man who was in the bushes next to the building. 

    Goodwill employees called 911 when they realized that someone was pinned against the building. 

    The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries. 

    Police said he was not a store employee and it's unknown why he was next to the building's loading docks. 

    Investigators said the driver of the truck was evaluated and had no signs of intoxication or impairment. The truck is being inspected for any mechanical issues. 

    The investigation remains ongoing.
