Hellish road construction took on a new meaning when a tragic and unusual accident occurred at a local construction site. A local construction worker from Woodbrdge was crushed by an asphalt roller and died as a result of the injuries. The accident ensued after the operator of the roller lost control and ran his coworker over. The police determined there was no foul play and gave the investigation to the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry. The VDLL will take 6 months to determine if any fines or citations would be prudent. The construction company expressed its shock and sadness and have a full internal investigation going on as well.
