SECURITY-WIDEFIELD, Colo. (KKTV) - A worker was killed late Tuesday morning when he was crushed by construction equipment at a commercial site near Security-Widefield.

Several people witnessed the accident, said Sgt. Jason Garrett with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office received a call at about 11:45 a.m. and the worker died at the scene.

According to the sheriff’s office, the person who died had been “run over” by a vehicle.

“An initial scene evaluation and interview of witnesses did not reveal any suspicious details of the incident,” Sgt. Garrett wrote in a news release. “As such, members of the El Paso County Coroner’s Office responded as requested. Upon completing their initial evaluation they will conduct a formal autopsy to determine the official cause of death. We will release the man’s identity once the Coroner’s Office has completed their autopsy.”

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will also be conducting an investigation.

The man killed was identified as Maceo Mason. 11 News confirmed a GoFundMe account that benefits his family. Click here to give.
