A worker was killed Saturday in Queens when he became pinned between a forklift and a delivery truck, sources told The Post.

The man was working at the FDNY parts depot at 30-03 Review Avenue in Long Island City, when he put the forklift in neutral and placed it next to his van.

When he left the heavy machinery to retrieve something from the van, the forklift somehow started rolling, crushing him between the van and the forklift, police sources said.

Cops responding to the scene at 12:35 p.m. found the man unconscious and unresponsive, the sources said. EMS brought him to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the sources said.
