Police say the death of a worker who was run over by a colleague driving a tractor-trailer in Massachusetts appears to be an accident.
Norwood police responded to a 911 call at about 3:30 p.m. Monday about a pedestrian struck by a truck.
Chief William Brooks says the driver and the victim were employed by the same company and were delivering roofing supplies to a construction site. He says it appears the driver was backing up and did not know the victim was behind him.
