GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - Police say a 36-year-old construction worker was killed while fixing a dump truck in Evans.

Police Chief Rick Brandt tells The Greeley Tribune (https://bit.ly/1wGHJsR ) that Robert Felix Crespin Jr., of Lochbuie, was fixing a latch Monday when the dump truck’s doors closed, crushing him to death. It’s unclear if Crespin was standing in the belly of the truck or on the ground at the time.

His body was found by a co-worker who went to check on him after not hearing from him for several hours.

Crespin was working for Rio Construction Services in Brighton.
