A man reportedly died after a traffic pole fell on him while he was unloading it near Miller and Broadway Road in Buckeye, Arizona on Thursday, Oct. 13.

The victim, identified as 47-year-old Brock Salveson, a worker who works for AJP Electric, was unloading a traffic pole to be installed near Miller and Broadway roads on Thursday. However, while he was unloading the poles, the traffic pole fell onto him and killed him, FOX 10 Phoenix reported.

According to Salveson’s son Jacob Miner, his father was a contractor in the Valley for years and was working for AJP Electric during this tragedy.

“He was a really good man,” Miner said. “And he was a really hard-working man.”

Following the tragedy, Miner has been trying to get further information about the circumstances that led to his father's death. However, he says that he hasn’t been able to get any more information from the company about what happened, azfamily 3TV CBS 5 reported.

“All his senses are good and what not and I’m sure he could handle a lot so I just want to know who slipped up on this one,” Miner said. “Whose fault is this and who is responsible for it? We just want to get to the bottom of it.”

Miner says that he is trying to stay strong, as that’s what his dad would want him to do. “I’ll miss talking to him,” Miner said. “He always gave me good life advice and he was a really good dad. I’m going to miss him.”

"He really taught me to be mentally strong. I want to say that. He was just a great dad," added Miner. “He was a hard-working guy. He loved the military. I mean he instilled that in me, too. "

Following Salveson's tragic death, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, a government agency that oversees workplace safety procedures, is investigating the incident.

According to OSHA's fatality inspection data, another Arizonan had similarly died on the job this year. The agency reported that there have been five on-the-job deaths in the state last year and 14 deaths in the year 2020.
