The Maryland Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the death of a Baltimore teen-ager who died Saturday when he was accidentally pinned beneath several steel carts inside a trailer at a Glen Burnie fast-food restaurant.

Dwight Antoine Courts, 15, of the 2100 block of W. Fayette St. was helping his father unload a delivery truck at the Checkers restaurant in the 400 block of Crain Highway about 4 p.m., county police said.

The father left the truck, owned by Marriott Trucking of Savage, while his son stayed inside the trailer. When the father returned, he found his son pinned beneath the steel carts. Restaurant employees helped free the youth.

The teen-ager was taken to North Arundel Hospital, where he died, police said.
