Victorian farm worker crushed to death

A farm worker has been killed, crushed by a bulk seed bag in Victoria’s west.

The 54-year-old man was trying to unload the bag into a semi-trailer truck at Crowlands, northeast of Ararat, on Wednesday morning when he ran into trouble.

It is believed he became pinned against the top of the trailer when the bag shifted after it was lifted above the truck with a telehandler.

His death is under investigation by WorkSafe and takes the state’s workplace fatality toll to 16 for 2022, 11 fewer than at the same time last year.
