A 34-year old Ellicott City construction worker died Monday morning after an excavator hit him in the head on a residential building site in North Laurel, according to Howard County police.

Morgan Tyler Gainer of the 9200 block Crabapple Lane was working on a project at Palace Hall Drive and Skylark Boulevard for the W.F. Wilson and Sons Inc. construction firm based in Elkridge when the machine hit him.

Fellow employees called for an ambulance at 7:50 a.m. but Gainer was pronounced dead on the scene just minutes later.

The Maryland Safety and Health Administration is investigating.
