The Crown prosecutor's office has decided not to press charges in the October death of a construction worker, RCMP confirmed in a press release Wednesday.
A 25-year-old Edmonton man died after he was hit by a truck in the afternoon of October 9, 2013. The man was working as part of a road resurfacing crew at the intersection of Akins Drive and Hebert Road.
He was employed by O'Hanlon Paving Ltd. in Edmonton.
The man was transported to the Sturgeon Community Hospital and died shortly thereafter.
He was struck by the back end of a Chevrolet pickup truck that was being driven by another crew member.
Construction workers at the scene said he was hit while taking samples from the roadway.
“After a thorough review, the office of the Crown prosecutor has recommended that no charges be pursued in this tragic incident,” said RCMP.
