When working around tracked or rubber tire heavy equipment, it's your job not to get in the path of the equipment. Operators have lots of blind spots. However, accidents do and will continue to happen.
Condolences to the family.

No where does the article mention another person operating the backhoe. How do you know this? I assumed the backhoe was on the side of the road & slipped into gear or had some other system failure causing it to move. An unfortunate accident no matter the reason. My sympathies & prayers to his family & friends.
Well I am sorry if I made a different assumption than you. I just don't know of to many Backhoes driving around without someone behind the wheel.(I could be wrong) You know what they say about assumptions ... that will either be me or you. We have to wait to find out.
