Name of bulldozer fatal victim released

RED HOOK – State Police said the female construction worker who was struck and killed by a bulldozer on a Red Hook project on Thursday was Susan Coons, 44, of Elizaville. She was part of a two-person team operating an 18-ton bulldozer leveling a field.

Coons was off the machine when the operator, a 45-year-old Tivoli man, adjusted the blade and noticed his partner had been struck. He called 911. First responders rushed Coons to Northern Dutchess Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

An autopsy determined Coons died as a result of severe blunt force trauma.
