A man was crushed to death Thursday morning when the pizza oven he was delivering fell on him.

Richard Hall, 30, was one of three workers unloading the 1,400-pound oven at a Papa John's pizza restaurant when it fell off the truck, authorities said.

The lift-gate apparently broke off the back of the truck causing the oven to fall onto Hall, police said.

Hall was brought to North Fulton Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
