Last month, a construction accident in Staten Island, New York killed a 53-year-old construction worker. He was standing behind a white Mack dump truck when it crushed him, first with the rear and then with the front tires. Police said the construction worker was out of view of either mirror.
Emergency response crews tried to revive the injured worker before taking him to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. There were no charges filed, and the police called the incident a tragic accident.
The fatal construction accident occurred before 2:30pm in the afternoon. Police closed the southbound lanes of Richmond Avenue for accident investigation.
