    What a tragic and sad accident !
    I sure hope that the dozer operator didn't run over his or her grade checker. I ran dozers for 30 years and my worst nightmare was that something like that could happen. I actually saw a grade checker jump in behind a dozer that was making a cut and the operator (not me) suddenly threw the the machine in reverse unexpectedly without first looking back, thank God the grade checker was very young and fast and was able to jump out of the way.
