Update: Davenport police have identified the man who was killed in a construction accident, Dec. 11, 2012. Police say 56-year-old Thomas H. McLachlan of Davenport was grading a steep embankment when the dirt gave way causing his bulldozer to roll onto its side, trapping McLachland under the machine. The accident is being investigated as a motor vehicle crash.

Mclachland worked for Hawkeye Paving Company. In a posting on the company website, he had been the company's lead operator since 1987.  The posting also says "The entire company is saddened by the loss of a very valuable employee and a wonderful person who will be missed terribly by all of us." 

Previous story: 

One person is dead after being pinned under a piece of heavy equipment at a Davenport construction site.

It happened just before 9 a.m. Tuesday on Elmore Ave. First responders arrived to find one person trapped under a bulldozer that had tipped over onto its side. The person's name has not been released. 

The northbound lanes of Elmore Ave., near the Lowe's home improvement store, were closed to traffic for about an hour.
