A man was crushed and killed by rental truck at a Denver self-storage facility. 

Benjamin Dodt, 26, and a friend were loading or unloading items from a rented U-Haul truck at a Public Storage Saturday when the truck began to roll, police said.

Both men jumped in front of the truck to try and prevent it from hitting the building. Dodt apparently slipped on a patch of ice and was trapped between the truck and the wall of the building. Investigators said Dodt suffered a crushed skull and died at the scene. The friend was not injured.
