BEAUMONT — Alberta Mounties have released the name of a man who was killed after being pinned between two large vans.
The accident happened Saturday afternoon in a quiet neighbourhood in Beaumont, just south of Edmonton.
A significant snowfall overnight left roads slushy and witnesses say one of the moving trucks became stuck.
The workers hooked up a chain between the two vehicles so one could pull the other one free but it was unsuccessful and the chain was removed.
The second truck began to move forward and crushed Ronald Alfred Halls, 61, of Edmonton.
Occupational Health and Safety is investigating.
