A 42 year old construction worker had died from injuries suffered in an accident at a work site in Sarpy County.
Jeffrey Gulp was employed by TSI Mechanical of La Vista, a subcontractor working on a drainage system at the new Papillion Public Works Department building at 9909 Portal Road Wednesday.
The Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office reports Gulp was one of three employees working on the project when a backhoe struck the electrical service incased in a plastic conduit.
Gulp came into contact with that line. Gulp was rushed to a hospital in critical condition where he later died.
Information from the investigation will now be turned over to Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
