PASADENA, TEXAS — A worker was killed on Feb. 21 while loading containers onto a ship at the Bayport Container Terminal, according to ABC13.

The victim was operating a truck known as a "mule," which is a truck that containers are loaded onto from ships, according to Port of Houston Authority spokesperson Lisa Ashley.

She said the truck was lifted off the ground by a crane because the container on-board did not detach.

The worker was killed.

The Port of Houston Authority Police is investigating.

The worker's identity has not yet been released.
