A construction worker from Massachusetts has been killed while working on a road project in Warwick, Rhode Island.

Police Deputy Chief Michael Babula tells The Providence Journal the 45-year-old Fall River man was killed around 2 a.m. Wednesday when a large piece of construction equipment fell on him.

He says federal workplace safety investigators and the state Department of Transportation are investigating.

Police did not identify the man, pending notification of his family.

The man was working on a $30 million project to reconfigure roads through Warwick's Apponaug section.
