Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200923506Event: 06/25/2012Chain Saw Operator Is Struck And Killed By Tree Root Ball
At approximately 8:00 a.m. on June 25, 2012, an employee of a site development contractor was working at a planned single family home development site in Woodbridge, VA. He was removing trees from a wooded lot. The standing trees previously had been knocked down with track loaders and left on the ground with their root balls attached. The employee, a chain saw operator for the company, was using a chain saw to cut the root ball and stump from the trunk and crown of a tree. The root ball of the tree was approximately 11.5 feet across at the widest point. As he completed the cut, the root ball dropped down and twisted suddenly toward the employee, striking him. Prince William County Fire & Rescue responded and pronounced the employee dead on the scene.
