ELKO, Nev. (AP) -- Nevada's Occupational Safety and Health Administration continues to investigate last week's death of a construction worker at a project on Interstate 80 in Elko County.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports that 53-year-old Pam Hunt was killed in the worksite accident around noon Thursday about 18 miles west of West Wendover.

Elko County Undersheriff Clair Morris says Hunt was declared dead at the scene after she was pinned between a rubber wheel roller and another metal roller.

Hunt was a heavy equipment operator for the Fisher Sand & Gravel Company on contract with the Nevada Department of Transportation's Silver Zone project.
