FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (FOX 5 DC) - A man is confirmed to be dead after Fairfax County police responded to an industrial worksite Tuesday where one person was injured by machinery and pronounced dead at the scene.
The incident occurred in the 9900 block of Richmond Hwy in Lorton.
Franconia Police say officers responded around 9:30 a.m. for a report of an employee who was hit by a front loader truck.
When personnel arrived on scene, they found Chris Baransky of Woodbridge and paramedics pronounced him dead.
Detectives determined Baransky was performing his duties in the yard. Another employee operating a front loader failed to see Baransky and hit him. The driver immediately notified fellow employees, who summoned police.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death. At this time, there is no indication of criminal activity, but detectives are continuing their investigation in partnership with officials from the Virginia Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
