Accident kills employee at Cal-Waste

Tragedy struck Cal-Waste last Wednesday morning, when a maintenance supervisor was struck and killed in an accident at the waste management center headquarters on Enterprise Court.

Galt emergency personnel were dispatched just after 5 a.m. on June 26, where they found the victim already deceased from injuries.

“It was reported that a driver of a loader was backing up and struck another employee whom he did not see, killing the employee,” a Galt Police Department Facebook post said.

The victim was later identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s office as Galt resident Leopoldo Ramos, 56.

The incident is under routine investigation by Cal-OSHA.
