NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - A 65-year-old Michigan man has died at a construction site in northwestern North Dakota after being buried by gravel beneath a loader.

William Makela died Monday at the site near New Town.

Officials say gravel at the site slid off a pile and knocked down Makela, burying him beneath a loader.

Workers at the site were able to partially uncover Makela and emergency responders finished removing him, but he was declared dead at the scene.

Makela’s body has been sent to the North Dakota State Forensic Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.
