An Arkansas man was killed July 15 in a construction accident on Broadway Street in Dickinson, according to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration.

Alex Lee, 23, of Conway, Ark., was operating a steel-wheel packer for John T. Jones Construction at about 2:30 p.m. when it slid down an embankment, rolled over and threw Lee, crushing him beneath the vehicle, said Eric Brooks, OSHA’s Bismarck Area Office director.

Fargo-based John T. Jones Construction is working on the Dickinson Water Reclamation Facility.

A message left for John T. Jones President Jeff T. Jones was not returned as of Tuesday morning.
