Farm worker dies in truck unloading incident

A 55-year-old man has died after being crushed between a tip truck and a front end loader on a property at Cowwarr yesterday.


It's understood grain pellets were being unloaded from the truck into the loader's bucket at about 11.55am when the loader moved forward, trapping the worker.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death brings the workplace fatality toll to 28 for 2022, six fewer than at the same time last year.
