Contract Worker Killed by Semi-Truck in Cleveland, Ohio
CLEVELAND, OH. – According to an online news report from news5cleveland.com, a man doing contract work on the side of a Cleveland, Ohio, road was struck and killed by a semi-truck. The circumstances of the truck accident are not yet completely clear.*
77-year-old Tony Abramo was working at the intersection of Jennings Road and Denison Avenue in Cleveland, near the Chemical Solvents location. He was a contractor for Chemical Solvents and obtaining measurements for construction materials to be used by the company. A semi-truck somehow hit Abramo at the intersection, causing him critical injury.
Abramo was transported to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, where he was pronounced dead shortly before noon. The driver of the semi-truck has not been identified. The truck was owned by a transportation carrier out of Erie, Pennsylvania, and not affiliated with Chemical Solvents.
A spokesperson for Chemical Solvents confirmed that Abramo was a long-time trusted contractor for the chemical manufacturer. However, the spokesperson said Abramo was not an employee of the company, so “out of respect for the Abramo family,” the company would not make additional comment about the accident. The spokesperson added that Abramo was a “great guy” and well-liked by everyone who worked with him.
The cause of the accident is not yet known. It is not clear whether Abramo was in the roadway or whether the semi-truck traveled off the roadway before the crash. Cleveland authorities are investigating the accident and have not released additional information at this time.
