Md. Man Dies In Construction Site Incident

NEW MARKET, Md. (AP) — The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says a construction worker is dead after he was run over by a piece of equipment near New Market.

Cpl. Scott Blundell says David Garcia, 37, was pronounced dead at Shock Trauma in Baltimore shortly before 12:30 p.m. Monday.

Blundell says Garcia was working for New Market-based contractor Harland J. Shoemaker and Son Inc. when he was run over by a skid loader Monday morning at the company’s headquarters.

A skid loader is a relatively small vehicle, such as a Bobcat, that can be fitted with attachments for grading or lifting.

Blundell says the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health agency is investigating the incident as a workplace accident.
