Construction worker on Idalou Road dies from accident

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

State Troopers say a driver moving a mobile home struck and killed a construction worker on Idalou highway near the Palm Room Tuesday afternoon.

German Narquia, 20 of Amarillo was killed instantly while he was in the middle of a cement paving job.

Narquia was a construction worker for J.L. Millegan, which was contracted through TX DOT.

The driver of the truck. Harold Hamilin, 65 of Lubbock did not realize anything was wrong until after the fact.  Officials can't say just how close Narquia was to the road when he was struck.

DPS Senior Corporal John Gonzalez says it's common for the driver of a large truck-trailer combination to not even know they hit another car, let alone something much smaller like a person.

Gonzalez says, "When you're around trucks that are being pulled by semi sometime they don't realize that you're back there so keep out of the blind spots keep a safe distance from the rear to the sides.'

The case is currently under investigation and so far no charges have been filed.

    Lower federal courts have so far agreed with opponents of the travel ban, who argue it targets Muslims in violation of federal law and the Constitution and stems from Trump's campaign pledge to halt the entry of all Muslims into the U.S.
