JACKSONVILLE, Florida (WTLV) -- Police say a street sweeper was crushed to death while trying to unclog his machine in the parking lot of Jacksonville's Regency Square Mall.

Investigators say the man was cleaning the Piccadilly parking lot on Friday morning. While he was cleaning, one of the equipment's pieces became jammed.

Police said when the man went to the back of the street sweeper to unclog the jam, an equipment part called a "hopper" fell on him.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

At this time, police have not released the man's identity. He was reportedly working for a private contractor.
