Aussie Tow Truck Driver Killed

Sad news...

Police say the 51-year-old was reversing the road roller off his vehicle when it toppled off, trapping him beneath it at East Seaham about 6:30pm (AEST).

Officers and ambulance crews rushed to the scene on Italia Road but the man died a short time later from internal injuries.

Police believe the road roller lost traction on the tow truck's tilt tray.

They are preparing a report for the coroner.
