Man killed on worksite near Rocky Mountain House

A 67-year-old man was killed on a worksite after his truck rolled over him last week.

Alberta Occupational Health and Safety spokesperson Lisa Glover said the man, a water truck operator, was killed on a worksite north of Rocky Mountain House on Hwy 22.

Glover said the man had stopped to close a gate and left the truck running on a sloped surface. The truck rolled forward over the worker. A co-worker found the man about 20 minutes later.

STARS Air Ambulance was dispatched to the site and pronounced the man dead at the scene.

The man was employed by RW Millar Drilling, under prime contractor Encana. No stop work order was issued as a result of this incident.
