Lowndes County - A construction worker was killed today in a tragic accident on the Interstate.

The man was working on a road resurfacing project on I-75 near exit 29 in Lowndes County when a co-worker accidentally backed over him. The driver of the truck was backing up to get a load of asphalt, and didn't see the man behind him.

"He was looking in his left side mirror and the other worker was on the ride side, to the rear of his truck," said Trooper Jim Brown.

Both men worked for Douglas Asphalt Company. Troopers have not released the victim's name pending notification of kin.
