Death of Worker at Vulcan Materials Company Appears Accidental



This morning’s death of Colin Sawasky, 22, at Vulcan Materials Company, 5853 River Road, appears accidental.

West Precinct officers were called to the quarry at 11 a.m. The operator of a front end loader was putting sand into a ditch where Sawasky was working when the heavy machinery slid into the ditch, pinning him against a concrete culvert. He died at the scene.

Sawasky, of Wisconsin, had been hired by a subcontractor.
