Machinery accident: Investigations continue after death

INVESTIGATIONS are under way after a man was killed in a machinery incident on the Bruxner Highway this week.

A Safework NSW spokesman confirmed they had launched proceedings.

He said the work was ongoing.

"We are unable to give out further details until the investigation is complete," he said.

Emergency services were called to the Bruxner Highway near Atfield St about 11.10am on Wednesday.

Richmond Police District Inspector Nicole Bruce said the man, who died when loading machinery onto a truck near Lismore on Wednesday morning, was 48-year-old Kent Kilbride.

Insp Bruce said Mr Kilbride - an independent road contractor - was from the Logan Shire.
