At 10:24 a.m., California Highway Patrol officers responded to 5376 Marybelle Lane in Shingle Springs. Javad Tayebi, 66, was ploughing his front yard in a tractor and had not been seen for about a half-hour, so his wife went to check on him, Officer Quinn Cuthbertson said. She found him underneath the upside-down tractor.
“He was crushed,” Cuthbertson said. “There was nothing anybody could have done.”
Because Tayebi was maintaining private property, it was not considered an industrial farm accident, and that made the CHP the reporting agency. Had it been classified as a farm accident then the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, better known as OSHA, could take over the investigation.
El Dorado County Fire, Cameron Park Fire, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and the CHP responded to the scene.
