San Leandro Industrial Accident Kills John Jacini

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of John Jacini, the man killed at the Volvo plant in a San Leandro industrial accident.

John Jacini was a 48-year-old mechanic who lived in Castro Valley. He was crushed to death by a tractor when the machine slipped from up on a track and fell on him. Cal-OSHA was sent to the plan to investigate the fatality. Cal-OSHA spokesman Peter Melton stated that it is not clear how the front-end wheel loader slipped off the track.

The Volvo Construction and Equipment Services building is located at 1944 Marina Blvd. in San Leandro. There have been no previous workplace violations.
