LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified a 60-year-old worker crushed to death by a drainage pipe at a road-building project in northwest Las Vegas.
The Clark County coroner has ruled the death of William Paul Little of Las Vegas an accident.
Occupational Safety and Health Enforcement chief Resty Malicdem didn't immediately respond Thursday to messages seeking information about the Tuesday morning incident at a site near Fox Hill and Alta drives.
Malicdem had said the worker was struck by pipe during an unloading operation.
Officials say he was pronounced dead at the scene.
