WEST YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

A heavy equipment operator was killed in an accident at a West York construction site this morning.

The York County Coroner's Office identified the man as 20-year-old Patricio Munoz, of Irvington N.J.

Authorities said Munoz was operating a crane at the former Keystone Weaving Mill, at 1320 W. Market Street, when the equipment became unsteady.

Munoz jumped from the controls and attempted to run, but was struck in the head as the boom toppled upon him, the coroner's office said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene shortly before noon.
