Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 29-Nov-2013
A pedestrian accident in West Austin claimed the life of a lead construction worker when a vehicle rolled onto him while he was repairing a garage from a previous accident involving a rolling vehicle.
Police identified the man who was killed as 72-year-old Hugh Charlton Perry. Perry was standing in front of the Ford F-250 pickup when it rolled. No one was in the vehicle when it rolled onto Perry, officials said.
According to police, the vehicle rolled down the steep hill, striking the man and pinning him beneath the vehicle.
The victim of the Austin pedestrian accident was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Other crew members who were working nearby heard the crash and found the worker pinned under the car.
Officials said the accident occurred on Beverly Hill Drive, near Mopac.
Police reported that a similar accident, involving an EMS vehicle had previously occurred on the same hill, which had prompted the construction crew to make repairs resulting from that damage.
