A Philadelphia man died one day after he was run over by a backhoe in Pennsylvania. He was crossing at the crosswalk when he was hit by the excavator. The backhoe that killed him was involved in a resurfacing project at the intersection; it had dumped a load of material into a dump truck from the front bucket of the backhoe and started to back away from the dump truck in a circular pattern striking him. The operator of the backhoe stated that he did look both ways before attempting baking away but did not see anyone.
