Industrial Fatality: A 60-year-old truck driver died Wednesday morning when he reportedly fell beneath the wheels of his dump truck. Liberty County Sheriff’s Captain Ken DeFoor identified the driver as Manuel Gutierrez Rodriguez of Beaumont. A contract driver, Rodriguez was attempting to enter a security gate at Trinity Materials Company on S.H.146 north in order to get a load of sand. Deputy Brad Taylor said that sources told him it is a common practice at that site for drivers to open the door of their truck and stand on the running board or outside fuel tank and swipe their entry card past a card reader. It appears that Rodriguez was standing on the side tank of his truck with it slowly moving when he was knocked off by a nearby post, falling under the wheels where he sustained fatal injuries. Pct. 3 JP Cody Parrish conducted the inquest and ordered an autopsy.
