A 38-year-old marshal at the Canadian Grand Prix was killed on Sunday in an accident involving a crane after the end of the Formula One race, organizers and the International Automobile Federation said.

The accident occurred as workers attempted to remove the Sauber driven by Esteban Gutierrez, who had been forced to abandon the race.

As workers used a mobile crane to lift the vehicle and return it to the pits, one worker, who was not immediately identified by officials, dropped his radio and attempted to pick it up.
