||Carbon monoxide poisoning is stated as the cause of death of 3 truck drivers. Propane gas-operated refrigerators in the drivers' cabs were identified as the CO-source. In one case a technically defective burner led to oxygen deficient combustion. In the other two cases oxygen deficiency in the closed driver's cab was attributed solely to the lack of fresh air supply from the outside. It is recommended to use electricity for operating the refrigerators.
