JAMESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - State police are investigating the death of a western Pennsylvania man after the roof of a pavilion where he was working collapsed.

Mercer County Deputy Coroner Cris Loutzenhiser says Philip Jackson, of Kinsman, was working on the 16-by-16 pavilion at a home in North Shenango Township when it gave way just before 11 a.m. Monday. He was pronounced dead a little more than an hour later at UPMC Horizon hospital in Greenville.

The (Sharon) Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1STLAwF) a man working with Jackson on the project was not injured.

Loutzenhiser says the 62-year-old self-employed contractor died from blunt force trauma.

The township is about 90 miles north-northwest of Pittsburgh, near Jamestown.
