INDIANOLA, Sanpete County — A construction worker was killed Thursday when he was run over by the truck he was driving Thursday.

About 9:15 a.m., two men were hauling a piece of equipment to a construction site in Sanpete County. The driver attempted to take the truck up a hill, but the vehicle didn't make it, the Sanpete County Sheriff's Office reported.

"The driver jumped out of the truck, and it appears he was run over by the truck," the sheriff's office said in a prepared statement.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity had not been released as of Thursday afternoon. The passenger stayed in the truck until it came to a stop. He was not injured.

Additional details will be posted as they become available.
