Construction worker dies after accident
SOUTH LYON — Authorities said a road construction worker has died after an accident in suburban Detroit.
Police said a truck full of asphalt was backing up when it struck Emmanuel Gonzalez-Garcia.
South Lyon Police Chief Lloyd Collins said emergency crews attempted for 30 minutes to resuscitate Gonzalez-Garcia last Wednesday, but they were unsuccessful.
The Detroit man worked for Ajax Paving of Troy.
The company's CEO, James Jacobs, issued a statement saying it's investigating the incident and extending its sympathies to Gonzalez-Garcia's family.
