UPDATE: Worker dies after being pinned under excavator at Mississauga site

MISSISSAUGA, ONT.

A man is dead after he was crushed by the tracks of an excavator on a construction site in Mississauga, Ont. on Oct. 10.

The man was working at 2431 Old Pheasant Road on a project relating to a watermain.

“The worker was working as a signal man for public traffic, was struck and crushed by the tracks of an excavator,” said Ministry of Labour (MOL) spokesperson Matt Blajer.

Police were called just after 2:30 p.m. after a report of a man stuck under a large piece of machinery without vital signs, according to published sources.

The man was freed but succumbed to his injuries at the project location.

The construction employer is Pacific Paving Limited.

The MOL is investigating and there are no work orders at this time.
