Fatal Crane Overturn

04/22/15

Toronto, Canada

A man in his 40’s was killed on a job site near Toronto, Canada, yesterday after he was struck by an overturning truck crane.
The incident occurred in the Brampton area where the man’s employer Forma-Con Construction was working. The police have confirmed that the Ministry of Labor was been called to the site and will be investigating what happened.

We have no details of what caused it and the only photograph we have does not show whether it was an overload or an outrigger issue, although the beams on the side of the overturn are clearly retracted.
