Pine Grove Man Killed In Freak Work Place Accident

A Pine grove man was killed yesterday afternoon in a freak work place accident.  According to the Calaveras CHP and County Coroner’s office, 50 year old Paul Anderson was parked at a work site on Lower Lake View Road, north of Lake View Road in Burson.   While transferring his trailer's gravel box into the dump bed of his truck, the Kenworth began to roll forward.   Anderson ran along side of the truck and attempted to regain control.  As he was attempting to climb into the cab of the big rig, he fell to the ground and was subsequently run over by the truck.  Anderson sustained fatal injuries as a result of the incident.   Since this collision involved a work site fatality and a commercial vehicle, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) as well as the CHP Valley Division Commercial Unit were notified and responded to the scene.   Alcohol and/or drugs are not believed to be a factor in this collision.
