A man is dead after he was struck by a dump truck at a construction site in Toronto’s Humber Summit neighbourhood.

It happened just before 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at a waste transfer station at Millwick and Milvan drives – which is near Islington and Steeles in North York.

Toronto police said a 39-year-old man was operating a 2020 Kenworth Truck in the yard when he reversed and struck a 52-year-old man who was an employee at the location.

The victim later died of his injuries in hospital.

“The Ministry of Labour, Training, and Skills Development (MLTSD) was notified of an incident on January 19, 2021, in North York. It was reported that the employer is Millwick Triple Waste Management. It was reported that a worker was struck by a dump truck,” a spokesperson said.

“EMS attended the scene and transported [the] worker to the hospital where it was reported that the worker passed away. The scene of [the] incident is held.”

They say inspectors have been assigned and the investigation is ongoing.
