The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating a construction site accident in which a cement truck backed over a subcontractor.
Terry Richerson of Great Falls, MT was injured when a United Materials concrete truck backed over him while ascending a 10-degree ramp in preparation to pour cement.
Richerson’s jacket was apparently caught in the truck’s drive shaft. He died at the hospital approximately 12 hours later.
The Great Falls Tribune reports:
Richerson was the owner of Elk Mountain Enterprises, a decorative concrete specialist.
He was one of two subcontractors on-scene at the time of the accident, building a warehouse for Benefis Healthcare on the 1400 block of 28th Street South
