A construction worker was killed in a workplace accident Friday in West Englewood on the South Side.

The 51-year-old was working at a construction site at 10:28 a.m. in an alley in the 2000 block of West 69th Place when a truck backed over him, according to Chicago police.

The man, identified as Javier Herrera of Elmwood Park, was dead at the scene, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Saturday ruled Herrera’s death an accident.

No one has been cited or charged. Area South detectives are investigating.
