An arguement ensued between the two as they accused each other of causing the accident.

The owner driver is reported to have gone back to his truck.

Just as he opened the door, the other truck driver moved his truck hitting the owner driver and pinned him between the door and his trailer.

Emergency personnel were called in but nothing could be done to save the man.
