Construction Accident Claims the Life of Worker Crushed Between Two Large Trucks

A 44-year-old construction worker was killed on Tuesday during a work accident at the Rainbow Dam construction site. Taun Kultgen suffered fatal injuries after he was reportedly crushed between two large trucks. The County Sheriff’s Office says that Kultgen was walking in between the two vehicles that were passing by each other when the crush accident happened.

Kultgen died from massive internal injuries. The State Crime Lab is examining his body.

In other work accident injury news, a worker sustained injuries to his lower body and hip when a 2,000-pound ink barrel crushed him on Wednesday. Police say that Justin Doak was trying to pour ink from the barrel into 5-gallon buckets when the barrel slid off a fork lift to land on top of him.

Last week, 47-year-old worker Kyle Damberg died at a construction site. He had been checking the status of the project when he fell unconscious. OSHA officials are trying to determine what caused the work accident.
