Original Media Release

A 55 year old St. Thomas man was struck and killed while directing traffic earlier this morning around 11:30 a.m. July 2, 2014. The worker for FACCA Inc. Construction was directing traffic around a boom lift (a four wheeled vehicle with a long boom and bucket for lifting workers) that was being used to work on the Burwell Road overpass bridge and was obstructing the west bound lane of the Highway #3 Bypass.

The worker was directing traffic just east of the Burwell Road overpass bridge when he was struck by a pick-up truck travelling West on the Highway #3 Bypass. The worker was pronounced dead at the scene.

Release of the deceased name is pending notification of next of kin.

The driver of the pick-up truck, a 46 year old Aylmer, Ontario man, and a 32 year old male passenger also from Aylmer, were not injured in the collision.

Elgin County OPP, with the assistance of OPP Technical Traffic Collision Investigators, continue to investigate the cause of the collision. The Ministry of Labour was also on scene conducting their investigation. The Highway #3 By-Pass was closed between Centennial Avenue and 1st Avenue in St.Thomas for several hours to facilitate the investigation.
