SF City Worker Dies After Being Hit By Vehicle That Became Unhitched From Tow Truck
This tragic fatal accident may have several causal factors, but the single solution for managing the risk that led to this event is to isolate city employees from live traffic. That I, to place a barrier between pedestrian workers and traffic. Of course, this is a unusual case. Here, an unoccupied car being loaded onto a tow truck, breaks loose and rolls fast enough to strike and kill Lilianna. If there had been an effective barrier around her, she would not have been harmed. We must do a better job of isolating workers from live traffic.
