    Authorities are investigating how a fatal construction accident happened Wednesday afternoon in Concord, Massachusetts.

    Police responded to the Willard Elementary School on Power Mill Road at about 2 p.m. after receiving a 911 call.

    According to the Middlesex District Attorney's office, a 55-year-old worker from Sutton had been working on the school grounds operating a flatbed truck with a crane attached to it. A preliminary investigation shows the worker was operating the crane while outside of the truck when an apparent mechanical failure somehow occurred.

    As a result, the worker was struck by the equipment. The man, who has not yet been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.
