CRAWFORD — The Nebraska State Patrol says a road construction worker in western Nebraska has been killed in a work accident.

The patrol says the incident happened Tuesday morning as a private construction crew was working at the site of a road resurfacing project on U.S. 20 in Crawford. Investigators say one of the crew members, 47-year-old Paulino Fonseca-Ramirez, of Clay Center, was crouching down near the rear of a large gravel trailer when the vehicle began to pull forward. The driver did not see Fonseca-Ramirez, and the trailer struck him.
