Elko County Undersheriff Rocky Gonzalez says 58-year-old Leland Shadbum of Gainesville, Georgia, was pronounced dead at the scene
after the rig driven by 58-year-old Anthony Noble of Edmonton, Canada, struck him as he walked through a fuel bay.
Gonzalez said Saturday's accident remains under investigation.
