The death of a Fort Qu'Appelle man on the weekend was the result of the young man being hit by a semi-trailer truck that was backing up, police say.

According to RCMP, Levi Nicholas Delver, 18, was pinned between a semi trailer unit and a building as the truck was backing up. It happened early on the morning of Nov. 2.

The teen was taken to the Fort Qu'Appelle All Nations Healing Hospital where he died of his injuries.

Police said an autopsy determined the cause of death was consistent with what they learned from their investigation and that foul play was not involved.

The building, police noted, was a pig barn although the young man was not an employee of the business.
