Traumatic Brain Injury Sustained in Work Related Fall

Posted on May 19, 2011
A North York man died Wednesday afternoon at Lancaster General hospital where he had been taken after a work-related fall that caused a traumatic brain injury. Alan E. Price, 40, died from a traumatic brain injury after he fell from a bucket truck. He was part of a work crew that was working to remove a tree from the lawn of a private residence on Stone Mill Road. Around 10:00 A.M. the boom lift in which he was working broke and the arm of the equipment swung the bucket into the side of the truck. This caused Price to fall from the bucket onto the ground. He was approximately 50 feet off the ground when he fell.

The assistant area director for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Matt Bole, said that an investigation report is expected within six months.
