Stuff reports that coroner David Crerar has ruled that a grader driver for South Roads became ill while driving his grader near Lumsden, lent over the side to vomit while it was still moving, then slipped on vomit and fell from the machine, which ran over his head.

WorkSafe found neither the dead man nor his employer had breached their obligations under the HSE Act.
