OAKLAND -- A man crushed to death between two buses Friday in an apparent industrial accident at an East Oakland repair yard has been identified as 55-year-old Tarsem Josen, according to the Alameda County Coroner's Office.

Josen, who was from Fremont and who police believed to be a mechanic at Charter Pros Bus Company, in the 700 block of 45th Avenue, was found by other workers about 12:04 p.m. wedged between two buses.

Firefighters and paramedics responded but he was pronounced dead a short time later.

How Josen got between the buses or how long he was trapped before he was found remained under investigation on Saturday.

Police turned over the investigation to officials with Cal/OSHA.
