Man Killed In Westport Construction Accident

WESTPORT, Conn. (AP) – Police say a 69-year-old construction worker has died from injuries sustained in an accident at a work site in Westport.

Lt. Eric Woods says Westport officers were dispatched to the scene at around 12:20 p.m. Tuesday.

The man, identified on Wednesday as Herbert Grant, of Stratford, was supervising the pouring of concrete at a Country Lane home when he was fatally struck in the upper body by the boom extending off of the front of a concrete truck.

He was taken to Norwalk Hospital, where he later died.

Grant was an employee of Suzio-York Hill Asphalt and Concrete Suppliers of Meriden.
Police say the investigation is ongoing with help from the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
