Larry Bochurka, owner of a Gimli-area quarry, was killed May 4 when he was thrown from a vehicle at his quarry. The Winnipeg Free Press reports that Bochurka, 57, was riding through the quarry in a jeep and apparently driving over a scale when the jeep tipped over and he was thrown. A contractor working at the site saw the abandoned vehicle and searched for Bochurka. Authorities say the accident doesn’t appear to be work-related, but staff members from Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health are investigating the incident.
