INDIANAPOLIS - A utility company says construction will resume Thursday on a project to build a sewer tunnel 250 feet beneath Indianapolis where a worker was killed last week.
Citizens Energy Group spokesman Sarah Holsapple says the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration never officially closed the Deep Rock Tunnel job site, saying the utility and contractor Shea-Kiewit JV stopped work out of respect to the family of 25-year-old William "Isaac" Simpson.
The Marion County coroner's office has ruled his death an accident, saying he died Friday of a "massive crushing blunt force traumatic injury of the head" on Friday. Citizens Energy has said no more information would be released about the accident itself until the investigation is finished.
Citizens Energy provides gas, water and sewer services for Indianapolis.
