CHERRYVALE, Kan. (AP) - Federal workplace safety officials are investigating the death of a 48-year-old man at a southeast Kansas job site.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration says the worker was fatally hit Tuesday by a vehicle at a Colt Energy Inc. natural gas pipeline construction site near Cherryvale in Montgomery County.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released.

A message left Thursday by The Associated Press with Nick Powell, Colt Energy’s president, was not immediately returned.
