    Default Driver killed in Cambridge, ON

    Drivers keep this family in your thoughts this week.

    Be aware of your surroundings both in and out of the truck. It only takes a momentary lapse of judgement to end your life.

    I took this from a CTV News report.

    Chris and his wife had just returned from an OTR trip. He was assisting another driver back into a spot in their yard.

    "A man is dead after a workplace accident happened in Cambridge over the weekend.

    Police say they responded to the incident on Balmoral Road at around 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.

    There they found a man, 62-year-old Chris Hesch, with serious injuries.

    He had reportedly been helping another driver back up a trailer when he was pinned between the trailer and the building.

    Hesch was taken to hospital but was later pronounced dead.

    Shawn Baird owns Sharp Transportation, which is where it happened.

    He calls Hesch "a wonderful human being."

    In a Facebook post, Hesch's wife, Shelley, shared the news of his death.

    "My world has been shattered," it reads. "I lost my bestfriend(sic), my soulmate, my husband yesterday in a tragic workplace accident."

    Hesch and his wife are well-known in the industry. She's the CEO of the Women's Trucking Federation of Canada.

    They drove together as a pair, and arrived home hours before the accident. She was in the yard at the time of the incident, Baird tells CTV.

    Police say that Employment and Social Development Canada were contacted and will be investigating what happened."
