Cruz died of multiple injuries, a coroner's office spokeswoman
Vallejo police Lt. Herman Robinson said Cruz and another employee
of KDW Construction LLC were surveying the future site of three homes at
Flagship and Club drives around 12:55 p.m.
A Caterpillar scraper grading the site was moving east toward the
2-man crew, Robinson said.
The driver made a U-turn and did not see Cruz who was holding a
pole used in the survey. When the driver looked back and saw Cruz on the
ground, he got out of the scraper and called for medical aid, Robinson said.
Cruz was pronounced dead at the scene.
The California Division of
Occupational Safety and Health is investigating the death.
