Pop quiz: Do workers need to check underneath their vehicles before driving away?
A Shelby, NY, farm worker was lying on his back underneath a flatbed truck – apparently taking a late-afternoon nap. This proved to be the absolute worst place he could have caught some Z’s, when his co-worker, Armando Luna-Castillo, hopped into the truck’s cab.
It didn’t occur to him to check underneath the truck for sleeping employees before pulling out, and Luna-Castillo drove the truck away – running over his co-worker.
The coroner pronounced the run-over worker dead at the scene, however identifying him has been difficult, due to his questionable immigration status.
Both the coroner’s office and the sheriff’s department are investigating the incident.
