    Martinez woman crushed by gravel truck was pregnant
    A 32-year-old woman who was fatally crushed by a falling gravel trailer in her Martinez driveway was planning to have the first ultrasound scan of her pregnancy this week, her grieving fiance said Tuesday as he questioned what he called a “totally avoidable accident.”

    Lindsey Combs, a hairstylist who was nearly two months pregnant, entered harm’s way Monday afternoon when she was asked to move her car farther away from a city sidewalk project.

    But after she got into the car at about 1 p.m., the gravel trailer tipped on top of her as her 4-year-old daughter looked on, according to police and witness accounts. The incident is under investigation by Martinez authorities and Cal/OSHA, the state workplace safety regulator.

    “I am devastated, upset, mostly upset that this was totally avoidable,” said the girl’s father and Combs’ fiance, 39-year-old Anderson Pamilton, in an interview Tuesday. “Just a roller coaster of emotions.”

    Lindsey Combs, a hairstylist who was two months pregnant, was killed Monday in a construction accident.


    Pamilton lived with Combs near the intersection of Shell Avenue and Pine Street, where a new sidewalk was being put in by the city-contracted construction crew. She worked in nearby Pleasant Hill, cutting hair at a Sport Clips outlet, which was closed Tuesday so co-workers could grieve.

    “She was a great mother. I envy what she had with my daughter — the bond they had was inseparable,” Pamilton said.

    Cal/OSHA, which has six months to complete its probe, is interviewing witnesses and construction employees in an effort to figure out what went wrong.

    “I know the public wants answers and Cal/OSHA wants answers, too,” said agency spokeswoman Julia Bernstein.

    The construction company under contract with the city is JJR Construction of San Mateo, according to state regulators. The firm is contracted to demolish and build a half-mile stretch of sidewalk along Shell Avenue. The trailer that tipped was rented by the truck’s owner, Daryl Crockett, from Greg’s Trucking Service, Cal/OSHA said.

    Martinez city officials referred calls about the incident to investigators. But Mayor Rob Schroder said the community was shocked and saddened.

    “We got almost 40,000 people in Martinez, but we still think of it as a small town,” he said. “The folks at City Hall were just kind of numb.”

    Friends and neighbors brought flowers to Combs’ and Pamilton’s home on Tuesday. A makeshift memorial grew on the corner.

    “She was so excited about having a baby,” said neighbor Amy Dunbinsky, 64. “They were a young couple trying to make it. It’s devastating. It’s not right.”

    At Sport Clips in Pleasant Hill, fellow workers were shaken up, said owner Ben Mangels. County crisis workers were expected to visit the salon in coming days.

    “It’s like a family member being tragically taken away from us,” Mangels said.

    Combs was an assistant manager and stylist who was one of the first hires when the salon opened six years ago. Combs had the largest following of clients of any employee, and in 2012 won a competition between Sport Clips stylists nationwide, Mangels said.

    “There is a saying in the industry that beauty changes lives,” he said. “ She believed that every day she was changing somebody’s life.”

    Dumbfucks use a tip trailer instead of smaller dump trucks to save a few bucks. Look at the fucking power lines in the photos of the scene. No business doing that on a residential street with obstructions and people around.

    Is this less tragic because she was a mudshark?

    How can fixing a sidewalk turn into a giant dump truck killing a woman in her driveway? Totally fucked up.

    Wow. You couldn't aim that any better. If she's just a few feet forward, she has just a close call. I've seen similar things with trees. I've never heard of a dump truck tipping.
