The brother of a man killed by a crane mounted on the back of a truck says his death has left the family reeling and searching for answers.
Mr Stack, known by his family and friends as Will-Tell, died on September 22 while walking along the Great Eastern Highway, near Williams Street, West Kalgoorlie, at about 10am with his cousin.
Mr Stack had come to Kalgoorlie-Boulder for the funeral of his cousin’s daughter. The day after the funeral, the two men had taken their car to a local business to get the tyres changed.
While the cousins were walking on the footpath, Mr Stack was hit from behind by a crane mounted to a vehicle. The accident left the man with severe head injuries and he died in Royal Perth Hospital about a week later.
His brother, Wayne Stack, spoke to the Kalgoorlie Miner this week and said his family had been “lost without answers” over the incident.
He said Mr Stack worked as a plant and machine operator for a mining company in Meekatharra.
“(He) had a big heart and a big smile all the time,” Wayne Stack told the Miner. “He was taken from us and we want answers.”
