Utility Worker Struck by Truck Dies

A local utility employee died Wednesday evening after being struck by a pickup truck in a three-truck collision on Queen Mary Highway.

A release from the V.I. Police Department, which did not name the victim, said three pick-up trucks collided during rush-hour traffic at 5 p.m.. One of the trucks, a 1982 pickup, lost control and ran off the road onto the sidewalk striking the 32-year-old worker.

The victim died six hours later from his injuries, after been taken to Gov. Juan F. Luis Hospital, according to Police spokeswoman Melody Rames. The release did not indicate which utility company employed the deceased.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident, Rames said. No citations had been issued as of publication time.
