Roll over

A dump truck accidently hit a pavement roller vehicle Wednesday morning on Grand Oaks Lane, tipping the vehicle over and sending one construction worker to a local hospital with minor injuries.

A man was injured in south Killeen this morning after a road construction vehicle rolled over, police said.

A dump truck collided with a pavement roller, causing the roller to roll over, injuring a man who was next to the roller, according to a Killeen police officer who responded to the scene near the intersection of Steppington Drive and Grand Oaks Lane. The man was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for minor injuries sustained in the accident.

The intersection is in a developing residential area near Chaparral Road in south Killeen. The accident happened on Grand Oaks Lane, which is a new road under construction.

Police said the Occupational Safety and Health Administration would be investigating because the accident occurred on a work site.
