Adams County authorities have identified a man who died Monday after falling more than 50 feet from a piece of equipment in what investigators are calling an industrial accident.


Valadez-Diaz, of Denver, was pronounced dead at the Henderson Truck Pit on the 10900 block of East 120th Avenue. The county coroner's office says he was 40 years old.

Sgt. Jim Morgen, spokesman for the county sheriff's office, said Occupational Safety and Health Administration were called to investigate the death.

Morgen described the Truck Pit as a gravel yard.
