When I was in college (late 80's) in middle Pennsylvania one summer, there 
was a news report that a highway maint. man was killed in a freak accident.

He was working with man in a dump truck, helping him back it up and dump the 
load... When the truck got in position, he indicated to raise the dumper (?), 
and as he did, it touched an overhead power line.

The guy in the truck watched his partner get electrocuted.

Turns out they were on loose gravel, it had rained the night before, and the 
electricity went through the truck to the ground, and over to the fellow by 
the truck.

The guy inside was not hurt.

The guy outside died.
