A construction worker was killed Tuesday when he was struck by a construction vehicle in the far northwest suburbs.

Marco O. Aguilar, 59, was working inside a pole barn maintenance building in the 14000 block of Hemmingson Road in Union when he was struck by a Bobcat, which was being used to prep and grade the floor, according to a statement from the McHenry County Coroner’s office.

Aguilar, of the 1400 block of North Green Meadows Boulevard in Streamwood, was pronounced dead on the scene, the coroner’s office said.

An autopsy Wednesday found he died of multiple injuries to his head, chest and abdomen.

McHenry County Conservation police, McHenry County Sheriff’s police and OSHA are investigating.
