Worker crushed by loader

A farm worker was seriously injured after being crushed by a frontend loader he was operating.

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland says its initial enquiries found the worker left the cabin to untie a hay bale when the vehicle started rolling down a slope. He became trapped between the vehicle and a gate post when he attempted to re-enter the cabin. Investigations into the incident are still continuing.
