Accidental Death Near Emporium Hardwoods

A man is dead after falling from the top of a load of lumber on a truck in Cameron County.

State police say 48-year-old John Johnson III of Unityville pulled his truck and tractor into an empty lot just north of the Emporium Hardwoods lumber yard at just before 2 o’clock this afternoon so he could put a tarp on the load.

While making adjustments to the tarp, Johnson fell from on top of the load and sustained fatal injuries.

He was pronounced dead at the scene by Cameron County Coroner Ted Walters.
