Worker Crushed To Death By Bulldozer

Comments Off

A construction worker was run over and crushed to death by a bulldozer at a construction site in northeastern Indiana, on Monday, according to police.

The man, 46, of Auburn, was conversing with a bulldozer driver when he failed to notice that another bulldozer was backing up and stepped into its path. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Monarch Development Inc. was on site building a new Dexter Axle building in the town of Albion, which is located about 30 miles north of Fort Wayne.

The accident happened just after sunset at 6:30 p.m., but several light towers kept the construction site well-lit, according to Chad Jacob, an Albion police officer.
