    April 17, 2012 No comments

    Monday morning at 9:30 a.m., the Indiana State Police at the Indianapolis Post was made aware of a worksite accident that happened on the westbound ramp to I-465 from Allisonville Road.

    Preliminary investigation reveals the worksite is located at the intersection of Allisonville Road and      I-465 on the northeast section of the site. The company working the site, Walsh Construction, is based out of Crown Point, Indiana.  A witness to the accident stated the excavator operator, employed by Walsh, was placing concrete barrier walls along the edge of the road.  The 2010 Caterpillar Excavator was backing during this procedure. It was stated the operator had two co-workers assisting him on both the left and right side of the machine, while he placed the barrier walls. At this point, the operator of the excavator lost site of the worker on the right side. This is when the accident happened.

    David Anderson 33, Brownsburg, IN was later identified as the worker killed by the construction machinery. His family has been notified.

    The Indiana State Police will reconstruct this accident. At this point of the investigation it’s unclear how or why this accident happened.

    Assisting with the accident was IMPD, Indianapolis FD, and the Marion County Coroner’s Office
