A construction worker in his 30s was killed Monday when a dump truck transporting gravel backed up and hit him in Ile-Perrot, west of Montreal, Que.

Quebec provincial police (SQ) officers working out of the Vaudreuil East office were called to the scene at Aumais St. in Notre-Dame-de-l’Ile-Perrot around 11:30 a.m. and pronounced the man dead on the scene.

The street is currently undergoing roadwork, and the collision was related to that work. SQ investigations and collision reconstructionists will further determine how exactly the fatal collision occurred.
