In a tragic accident in Baden-Württemberg, a 45-year-old was buried under his excavator. Inexplicably, the vehicle became independent.
An excavator driver was killed under his machine in a work accident at an industrial park in Hartheim (Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald district). The accident happened when the excavator rolled into a well for a previously unknown cause, police said.
The 45-year-old driver tried to jump out of the cab in the accident on Saturday, but was buried under the heavy vehicle. Moments later, he succumbed to his fatal injuries.
