Bulldozer Crushes…


A horrible incident in Albion, IN, took place where a bulldozer driver had to watch his co-worker get run over by another bulldozer without being able to do anything about it. The incident took place after dark at a construction site. However, the site had the right amount of light because of the light towers. According to the police investigators, a second bulldozer accidentally ran over the victim, a 46-year old man, while backing up when the victim failed to notice the bulldozer while talking to his co-worker, who was also a bulldozer driver.

When the victim finished his conversation with his co-worker, he accidentally dropped in front of the other bulldozer while the bulldozer was backing up which resulted in the death of the victim on the spot. The driver tried to get the attention of the other bulldozer’s driver, but he failed to do so resulting in the loss of life. The mystery behind the sad incident is yet to investigate thoroughly.
Now, several questions are piling up surrounding the incident> What is the reason behind the victim not noticing a bulldozer moving in front of him? Did the victim intentionally come under a moving bulldozer? What was safety equipment available to the driver alerting him his co-worker stepped right in front of the bulldozer? Hopefully.
The answers to these basic questions will be revealed during the investigation.
One must always be well aware of what their surroundings are because you never know what the future holds for you. It goes especially for those people who work around dangerous and heavy machinery. Workers working near heavy machinery always work under enormous risk, and it is imperative for them to be careful at all times.
If not, it can cost them their precious lives, as shown in the story above
