A construction worker was killed Monday while working on the Terminal 3 roadway project at McCarran International Airport, officials said.
The Las Vegas Paving Corp. employee was fatally injured about 11 a.m. in an incident involving a compact motorized earth-moving shovel, officials said.
Paramedics took the man to a Las Vegas hospital where he died a short time later, Clark County Fire Department spokesman Scott Allison said. The man’s identity wasn’t immediately released.
Nevada’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration officials are investigating, he said.
Airport Director Randall Walker issued a statement offering condolences to the victim’s friends, family and co-workers.
