A construction site accident tragically claimed the life of a Lewes, Delaware worker in early February, 2019. According to police reports, a concrete pumper truck stopped in the road at the construction site to allow other workers to work behind the truck. The workers were operating on a sewer with the manhole cover off. One worker was in the sewer itself while the other was just outside of it, working as a spotter. State police have said the truck began backing up and failed to see the spotter. The truck hit the spotter and killed him on the site.
While the police are continuing to investigate the incident, they have successfully identified the deceased worker as Arturo Roblero-Velasquez, a resident of Georgetown, Delaware. The driver of the truck that struck Mr. Roblero-Velasquez was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and came away uninjured.
