Worker dies in garbage truck crush

A garbage truck driver has died after being struck by the vehicle he was operating in Melbourne's CBD yesterday.


It's understood the 26-year-old got out of the truck on Hosier Lane about 7am before it rolled forward and pinned him against a post and building wall.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death is the 29th confirmed workplace fatality for 2023. There were 31 work-related deaths at the same time last year.
