County worker killed
A Tehama County Public Works Department crewman was killed on the job Thursday, Public Works Director Gary Antone said.
Danny Holman died when struck by heavy equipment while working with a crew removing a backhoe from a trailer in the Manton Road area, Antone said.
"It was a very unfortunate accident. Everyone in our department is in shock and saddened by this event," Antone said. "We are investigating the situation to determine exactly what happened, but we don't have an official report at this time."
He did say that it appeared all of the Public Works equipment appeared to have been in proper working order at the time of Holman's death.
Holman, of Red Bluff, had been working for the county for about a year.
