Car wash worker killed when sucked into brushes

In one of those who-would-have-believed-it accidents, an 18-year-old car wash worker was killed in Michigan when he got pulled into the machinery. Ricardo Martinez was cleaning the equipment at the end of the day with a pressure washer when, somehow, he became entangled in the machinery and received fatal injuries. While we've never really considered what would happen if a person went through a car wash, we didn't think the things were deadly. "Come summer, the work gets kind of hard," indeed.
