Charles Grundy Killed in Utah Industrial Accident
Charles Grundy, of St. George, Utah, was killed in a workplace accident when he was hit by a front-end loader driven by a co-worker. The work injury occurred on Interstate 15 in an area near the Utah-Nevada border. According to news reports, Grundy was standing in the Southbound Lane of I-15 with his back turned while talking on his cell phone. A co-worker did not see him and simply ran him over.
When someone dies on the job, or when three or more employees are hospitalized in a single event, OSHA is automatically called to investigate. The co-worker who ran him over probably did not have adequate training, and the jobsite was obviously not adequately monitored or supervised.
