BOURNE, Mass. (AP) — Two Massachusetts men working on high-tension power lines are dead after their bucket truck tipped over while they were in the basket more than 100 feet in the air.
Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe told the Cape Cod Times (http://bit.ly/1km7t6U ) that Joseph L. Boyd III, of Fall River, and John Loughran, of Quincy, had been contracted for an NStar project in Bourne, on Cape Cod.
Police Chief Dennis Woodside told the newspaper the two men were both in the bucket when the truck toppled over Saturday. He said they were killed instantly.
Woodside said it was not particularly windy at the time of the accident and the ground under the truck appeared to be solid.
The Office of Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.
