      A Elmwood Township man died from internal injuries after he was pinned between two trucks in his driveway.

      The Leelanau County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened around 2:44 p.m. on Monday.

      Alvin T. Lien was spreading gravel in his driveway when his 1994 Chevrolet pickup truck, which was parked at the top of his driveway, slipped out of gear and rolled down the incline into the gravel delivery truck. Lien was pinned to the 2004 Ford F450 delivery truck.

      Lien was taken to Munson Medical Center and was pronounced dead. It is believed the cause of death was internal injuries from the incident.
