A 21-year-old Sonoma County man has been crushed to death at the Santa Rosa glass company where he only had worked for four weeks.
 
The Press Democrat of Santa Rosa reports that the Thermalsun Glass Products employee was using a cart to move seven large sheets of glass on Friday morning when the cart tipped and the load toppled onto him.

  His name has not been released, but the Press Democrat says he lived in Windsor.
 
Co-worker Mathias Howell estimates that the panes weighed more than 100 pounds each. Howell says that as the glass started tipping, it seemed like his colleague froze.
 
State workplace safety regulators are investigating.
