PG&E Worker Scott Ramsey Killed in Auberry Forklift Crash

Auberry, CA (November 12, 2020) – On Monday, 48-year-old Scott Ramsey of Auberry died in a forklift type boom truck crash on Trimmer Springs Road near the PG&E Balch Camp Hydroelectric facility.

He was behind another truck down a narrow and winding mountain road when his right side tires swerved off the edge of the roadway.

As a result, the forklift truck overturned and slid down the steep mountainside.

The truck finally stopped near the Kings River about 150 feet below.

At the same time, nearby contractors with steep angle rescue training were also working in the remote area.

They used ropes and climbing gear to get to Ramsey’s location.

Additionally, Fresno County Sheriff helicopter Eagle-1 met the rescue crew with members of the Fresno County Fire/CALFIRE Technical Rescue Teams.

CHP Helicopter H-40 lifted Ramsey from the wreckage and flown to Balch Camp, where he died from his injuries.

Meanwhile, authorities do not consider alcohol and/or drug factors in this Auberry Forklift accident.

Police continue to investigate the crash.
