Road worker dies after being hit by vehicle

A traffic controller died on Wednesday after being struck by a vehicle at Trawalla.


It is believed the 59-year-old man was standing next to his vehicle, which was pulled over on the left side of the Western Highway on-ramp, when he was hit by the east-bound vehicle.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death brings the workplace fatality toll to 58 for 2020, four more than at the same time last year.
