CLACKAMAS, Ore. (AP) - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has fined Clackamas County $2,100 in the death of a county weighmaster who was shot to death in February when he pulled over a truck to check its load.

The agency says Grady Waxenfelter was at risk because his work vehicle looked too much like a police car.

Clackamas County officials told KGW (https://bit.ly/1kGJsdU ) traffic stops are no longer part of the job for weighmaster employees.

Meanwhile, Waxenfelter’s killer has still not been found. His widow has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the county.
