A 38-year-old worker died in a construction accident at a landfill Tuesday night, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

Jason Jolly of Ewing, Kentucky, was operating a bulldozer and trying to pull a excavator out of a pit with a tow strap when the strap broke about 7:45 p.m. at Miami Fort Station Lawrenceburg Landfill, sheriff's officials said.

The rope wrapped around the bulldozer and struck Jolly, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident remains under investigation.
