Crushed by Lorry

The worker, 56-years-old at the time of the fatal accident was working at his place of work undertaking some work which required him to connect a trailer to his lorry.

It is believed when the deceased was connecting the red and yellow airline, when the second airline was attached the trailer started to move away and at some point after, he became trapped between the cab and the trailer.

An Inquest Hearing took place where the Coroner ruled that there was no physical witnesses to the accident and officers concluded that the deceased’s death was due to a “driving error”.

As a result of this fatal accident at work, the deceased died due to suffering fatal injuries to his head, neck and back and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
