Nicholas Njenga

A Kenyan man, 31-year old Nicholas Njenga of Middelton, Delaware, is dead and State Police are investigating after an accident at an auto repair shop in Newark, Delaware.

Troopers say around 9:30 Friday night, Njenga and another employee at Savanna Auto Care were working on the hydraulic lift gate of a company truck. Troopers say Njenga was on the lift gate when the other employee went under the truck to do some troubleshooting. That’s when the lift gate started to operate, and Njenga was pinned between the gate and the truck.

He was subsequently removed from the scene by EMS and transported to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center where he succumbed to his injuries. The accident is still under investigation by State Police.
