Friday, March 4 just after 5 p.m. a co-worker who was driving the bulldozer up a hill and because his blade was lifted up 3-4 feet off the ground, made a turn and didn't see the porta-john and crushed the man inside who was using it. This happened at the end of the workday while trying to park the dozer for the day. The driver of the dozer immediately stopped after he heard a loud crumble and ran to the porta-john to find his co-worker unresponsive.
