Coroner Identifies Killed Construction Worker

LAS VEGAS - The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the worker who died during a road project accident Wednesday as 26-year-old Michael Angelo Garcia of Las Vegas.

Garcia died after some material fell on him at a Nevada Department of Transportation road project along I-15 near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Nevada Department of Transportation spokesman Damon Hodge says the man was a subcontractor working on an NDOT project. Damon says the agency is paving and doing related work in the area.

An account has been set up at Nevada State Bank to assist in expenses for the Garcia family. Those who would like to donate may do so at any of the bank's branches to account No. 618021877.
