SHAWNEE, KS (KCTV) -

Authorities are investigating after a 21-year-old man died from injuries after an accident at a FedEx facility.

Shawnee police were called about 8 a.m. Tuesday to 8000 Cole Parkway on the reported accident. When officers arrived, they found a man lying on the pavement. Authorities said he tumbled off a golf cart.

"Witnesses say he just fell off. It's still under investigation," said Capt. Jodi Andrews with the Shawnee Police Department. "But he just reportedly fell out."

The victim was transported to an area hospital where he later died. The victim's name has not yet been released.

Golf carts are routinely used to get around the massive complex.

In a statement, FedEx officials offered their condolences to the family and friends of the man killed in the tragedy. Company officials pledged their complete cooperation with authorities as they conduct their investigation.
