Mechanic killed in workplace incident

A diesel mechanic has died after being run over by a B-double trailer in Werribee South yesterday.


It is understood the 29-year-old was working underneath the trailer that was hitched to a prime mover that at about 12:45pm was driven away, leaving the worker with fatal injuries.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death takes the workplace fatality toll to 30 in 2022, four fewer than at the same time last year.
