Man electrocuted at work site
Ruston Police Department Lt. Curtis Hawkins said officers who responded at the scene reported bystanders heard the truck hit the power lines.
When they ran over to check out the situation and see if Solis was all right, they saw him lying on the ground, police said.
“One of the bystanders took a tow strap and pulled the victim away from the vehicle,” Hawkins said.
When Ruston firefighters arrived at the scene, Brazzel said they found the rubber tires of the forklift on fire. He said CPR had been started on the victim.
