A man who died at Toyota's Derbyshire plant was working as a lorry driver for the firm.
The 56-year-old was declared dead at the scene after officers found him trapped between two lorries at the factory in Burnaston in the early hours of this morning.
A spokesman said the company had sent its condolences to the man's family.
It is with great regret that I must inform you that we had a severe incident on site last night which unfortunately resulted in a lorry driver receiving serious injuries sadly resulting in his death.
We are not able to give any details but we are supporting the authorities with their enquiries.
We extend our condolences to the driver’s family and friends.
