Updated: Mar 31, 2021
A 71-year-old man was fatally injured when a dump truck backed over him in a construction zone.
Charlie Ellis of Goodlettsville was at a construction zone where a roadway was in the process of being repaved.
A Kenworth dump truck hauling asphalt backed over Ellis. The preliminary contributing factor to the collision appears to be improper backing on the part of the driver, Dennis Miller.
Miller showed no signs of impairment and any charges against Miller will be determined at the conclusion of the investigation.
