Truck Driver Pinned Between Semi, Loading Dock at Target

A truck driver is hospitalized after an accident at a loading dock.

According to Madison police, 33-year-old Christopher Smith of Minnesota was unloading a semi at the Target store on Lien Road Thursday.

He asked the driver of the truck to pull forward to give him more room. The driver did, but didn't set the emergency brake and the semi rolled backwards, pinning Smith between the truck and the loading dock.

Smith underwent surgery Thursday night at UW Hospital, and is said to be in critical condition.
