Diego Vasquez Killed in Homestead, FL, Loader Accident

Homestead, FL -- Diego Vasquez suffered fatal injuries as the result of an accident in which he was struck by equipment while doing contractor work.

At the moment, there are very few details about what happened in the fatal accident. The OSHA report does not even list the date on which that accident occurred, and there are few details surrounding the incident.

Reports say that Vasquez was doing construction work for Ortega Grading Inc., which has an address listed at 25005 SW 142nd Avenue in Homestead. During work proceedings, Vasquez was somehow struck by a front-end loader. The collision inflicted critical injuries to Vasquez from which he eventually died.

It's not currently clear how Vasquez was struck. There are many unanswered questions. Who was driving the loader? How did Vasquez and the machinery cross paths? Was there any safety equipment or a supervisor on-site?

Reports don't seem to be answering these questions at this time. If anyone has additional information regarding this accident, feel free to comment below.
