ORONO, Maine (AP) - Authorities say a man working on a road repaving project in Orono has died after being struck by a vehicle.

Police say 56-year-old Richard Thibodeau of Carmel was struck at about 7 p.m. on Tuesday while working on Forest Avenue. He was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

He worked for Harvey Paving and Seal Coating of Hampden.

The death remains under investigation by both local police as well as the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The agencies spent much of Wednesday reconstructing the accident.

No information was released on the driver who struck Thibodeau.
