WESTFIELD, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a 49-year-old telecommunications worker from Ohio has been struck and killed by a car while working along a western New York road.
State police say two employees of Cincinnati-based CTS Telecommunications were working Wednesday afternoon outside their parked utility truck on a road in the Chautauqua County town of Westfield, near the Pennsylvania border 55 miles southwest of Buffalo.
Troopers say the men were struck by a car driven by a 58-year-old woman from nearby Clymer. Police say Billy J. Johnson II of Crown City, Ohio was thrown into the utility truck's bucket, which had been lowered to about a foot off the ground. Also struck was 26-year-old Nathaniel Bailey of Glenwood, W.Va.
Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene. Bailey was taken to a local hospital for treatment of internal injuries.
