Truck driver dies collecting rubbish skip

A truck driver died yesterday after being struck by his own truck while collecting a hire rubbish skip bin at a workplace in Kew.


The driver, 55, had left the cabin of his vehicle when the truck moved and struck him before it crashed through a side fence and into a garage on an adjoining property.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The fatality brings the number of workplace deaths this year to four, compared to one at the same time last year.
