Bureau of Prisons spokesman Ed Ross said the worker was killed around noon Tuesday at an outside warehouse. Ross said no inmates at the facility were involved in the accident. There were no additional details.

The staffer's name is being withheld because his relatives haven't notified.

Ross said the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will begin an investigation into the worker's death on Wednesday.
