More details have been released about the death of a construction worker in Jupiter Farms on Monday. The victim has been identified as Jonathon Bryant, 40, of Stuart.

At 11 a.m., Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Capt. Albert Borroto said crews responded to the site on Whippoorwill Trail for reports of a worker injured at the location.

The investigation determined that the operator was driving a front end loader and began to reverse the machine; he looked into his rear view mirrors and reverse camera system and did not observe anyone.

Bryant was not paying attention and began walking into the path of the front end loader. He tripped over the rear left tire causing him to fall forward. He landed under the rear right tire where the machine ran over him.
