An autopsy has found that a man found dead in a recycling truck in western Michigan apparently died of accidental injuries sustained inside the compactor.

A worker who was sorting cardboard found the body of 48-year-old Anthony D. Wilson about 9:25 a.m. Monday among boxes at Louis Padnos Iron & Metal in Grandville.

Authorities say the truck that dropped off the boxes had made about 80 stops before it arrived at the recycling facility.

WWMT-TV ( ) says the Kent County Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death an accident.
