BELFAST — A Belfast Public Works employee died the morning of Sept. 9 after falling off a dump truck and hitting his head.

Deputy Police Chief Dean Jackson said Stephen Mathieson, 69, was in the back of a dump truck loading docks in the parking lot near Front Street Shipyard shortly before 10 a.m.

“While loading the docks, he fell out of the dump truck body and sustained a head injury,” Jackson said.

Mathieson was taken to Waldo County General Hospital by Belfast Ambulance, where he was later pronounced dead.
