A road construction worker was killed in an apparent accident on the SIU-Edwardsville campus on Thursday. Campus police were called to the scene around 3:30pm where the man was apparently pinned under some equipment. He later died at the scene along Stadium Drive near New Poag Road.
The identity of the victim has not been released pending the notification of family, but reportedly worked for Keller Construction of Glen Carbon. The company was repaving a small roadway just off Stadium Drive when the large piece of equipment rolled down an embankment and pinned the man underneath. The incident remains under investigation.
