Lakeland Mechanic Killed by RV

Chris Russo Mar 18, 2010

Gerald L. McMurty, 58, was killed when an RV that he was working on accidentally rolled.  McMurty and another mechanic were working on a 30 foot RV at Munday Machinery at 8165 State Road 33 North when the vehicle rolled at approximately 11:40 a.m.  The two mechanics were working on an automatic leveling system.  The vehicle was lifted by a 2 ton jack.  The other mechanic was in the bathroom at the time of the accident.  When he returned, he used a forklift to remove the RV.  McMurty was given CPR but could not be resuscitated.  The accident remains under investigation.
