Investigations continue after scaffolding crushes ute
INVESTIGATIONS into what caused piles of heavy scaffolding to collapse on Kevin Tinsdale's work ute from a neighbouring property are continuing.
A Work Health and Safety Queensland spokesman told the Daily inspectors had visited the scene on the day of incident.
Mr Tinsdale, of Kevin's Mobile Auto Electrics in Fishermans Rd, Maroochydore, was lucky to escape alive after the scaffolding crashed into the roof of the ute last Thursday.
Officers visiting the site said if he hadn't been bending to get keys out of his glove box, he wouldn't have survived.
As it was, he was battered and bruised and had to travel to hospital for a CAT scan and get various x-rays to survey the extent of the damage.
The neighbouring property, Waco Kwikform, a leading supplier of scaffolding and formwork products and services, has declined to comment on the incident.
Mr Tinsdale was eager to hear the outcome of the WHS report.
