The Wisconsin Department of Transportation called the death of a 33-year-old man a rare incident when he was killed by machinery at the site of the Zoo Interchange project in Milwaukee. The work accident happened near 91st Street on the westbound side of Interstate 94.
Details about the type of machinery involved were not provided by the Wisconsin DOT representative. The worker's death was confirmed to be related to work. A witness told a television reporter that the accident appeared to be near a machine that drilled holes for posts. Emergency crews worked at the scene for hours after the man was declared dead.
