A 19-year-old man was killed after he fell into a piece of industrial machinery in Duvall Monday morning, police said.
Duvall police and firefighters responded to a report of a man who had fallen into the machine around 9 a.m. The victim had fallen into an auger, a machine used to distribute tree bark, Duvall Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Lori Batiot said.

The victim’s name has not been released, but he was not a Duvall resident, Batiot said.
