Tulsa police say a man who was doing construction work on the Gilcrease Expressway was killed when an earth-mover ran over him.
The man, whose name wasn't immediately released, was working in an area south of 36th Street North and west of the Tisdale Expressway when the accident occurred about 9:30 a.m. Monday.
Police say the construction machine apparently lost power while at the top of a hill and then rolled down to the man at the bottom. Cpl. D. Snow says investigators are examining the scene and the machinery to determine whether there was negligence or it was just an industrial accident.
Emergency Medical Services Authority spokesman Chris Stevens says medics pronounced the man dead at the scene.
