The construction worker — identified as Brian Kelly Parker of Harlan — was taken to Montgomery County Memorial Hospital, where he died from his injuries.
The incident remains under investigation. The Red Oak Police Department, Red Oak Fire & EMS, Mills County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa State Patrol assisted at the scene.
