An Edmond woman has died from injuries sustained in a construction zone collision in Rogers County, troopers stated.
At 10:26 a.m. Friday, Eri Hernandez, 48, of Edmond, was working in an Interstate 44 construction zone about one-tenth of a mile east of 177th East Avenue in Rogers County, the investigating troopers stated.
Troopers stated the victim was working in the zone with her head down when a loaded 1994 Mack dump truck being driven by a Tulsa man backed over her.
Hernandez died at the scene due to massive injuries, troopers stated.
The dump truck driver was not injured, according to the OHP report.
Oklahoma Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kenna Carmon said the victim was working for an Oklahoma City contractor on an ODOT project, and the agency’s thoughts are with the crews and impacted families.
Carmon said work at the site was stopped and probably will resume Monday.
Several troopers and members of the Catoosa Police Department investigated the incident.
