        Wallace Jones, 39, of Madisonville was pronounced dead at the scene, said Fairfax Police Chief Rick Patterson. Police say Mr. Jones was moving the paper roll with a forklift when the roll toppled onto the forklift's safety cage.

        “The forklift roof did stop the impact ... for some unknown reason he exited the forklift” and was hit by the roll, the chief said. “It does not appear to be suspicious at all.”

        The chief said the weight of the roll has not been determined.

        The accident happened about 7:45 a.m. at the company at 3600 Red Bank Road. It is being investigated by Fairfax police and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Chief Patterson said.

        The company had no comment Wednesday. Chief Patterson said crisis counselors were sent to the printing plant.
