Pinoy worker killed in New Zealand farm accident

A Filipino farmworker died after a motoring accident at Wallacetown, New Zealand, a report on Stuff.co.nz said.
The 21-year-old man died in the intensive care unit of Southland Hospital after the accident, the report said.
Waltoru Farm director Stephany Dunphy and her husband Craig said two trucks carrying rock were on their way to the farm while the farm hand was driving a quadbike home for lunch.
Mr. Dunphy speculated that the dust raised by one of the trucks along the road made it difficult for the Filipino to see the second truck and forced him to swerve off the road to avoid the vehicle.
The Filipino's brother was first on the scene when the accident happened. Both brothers and their father worked at Waltoru Farm.
Environment Southland, responsible for monitoring the environmental conditions of New Zealand's southernmost region, confirmed that it contracted trucks to bring rocks to Waltoru Farm as part of a project involving the Oretl River.
Police are still investigating which company the trucks belonged to. Rie Takumi/KBK, GMA News
