Posted:

MIDDLETOWN, Del. (AP)- Officials are identifying a man who was killed earlier this week while working on the construction of a sewer line in Delaware.

State officials on Tuesday identified the man as 62-year-old Jerry D. Hurley of Port Deposit, Md.

Hurley died Monday after the earth collapsed under him while he was working on the construction of a sewer line to serve development near Middleton.

A spokeswoman for the state medical examiner's office, Jill Fredel, says Hurley's death has been ruled an accident.

Hurley was working for Austin & Bednash Construction Inc. of Newark. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating his death. No one answered at the company's office early Wednesday.
