BOARDMAN, Ore. (AP) - Police say a second man has died while working on an Eastern Oregon highway this week.

Oregon State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings says 64-year-old Glen McCoy of Sparks, Nevada, died late Wednesday on Interstate 84 near Boardman.

McCoy worked for a construction company installing rumble strips at a paving project. Hastings says McCoy was run over by a pickup operated by another employee that had a piece of equipment in tow.

The Oregon Department of Transportation responded to the scene to help investigate, and Oregon OSHA was notified.

Earlier this week, an ODOT employee died at a work site near Echo.

Lt. Michael Turner says 54-year-old Donald Kendall was part of a maintenance crew paving Highway 320 on Tuesday when a dump truck slowly backed up and ran over him.
