Investigators identified Friday the employee killed at the Coca-Cola bottling plant in East Baltimore.

Joshua Cunningham, a contract worker, died Wednesday when a trailer fell on him, officials said. The Chase resident was 28.

The accident occurred about 10:30 a.m. in the 700 block of Kresson St., near East Monument Street and Pulaski Highway, said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a fire spokesman.

A jack that had been moved under the front of the trailer gave way, said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. City homicide officers and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating the incident, he said.
