A delivery driver died on Monday morning at a site of the cement manufacturer Lafarge in Port-la-Nouvelle (Aude), buried under the rubble that his truck was transporting, said a source close to the investigation, which has been opened for "involuntary manslaughter".

He wanted to "make sure the goods were unloaded"

The accident took place around 06:00 on Monday. The victim, employed by a subcontractor of the cement manufacturer Lafarge, had gotten out of his vehicle to "ensure the unloading of the goods", the source close to the case described.

"Expert assessments will be carried out to determine the causes of this death," the source said, adding that the labour inspectorate had been jointly seized. Psychological assistance has been set up for the site's employees, according to our colleagues at L'Indépendants.
