Companies agree to pay fines in connection with highway worker's death

By Margo Sullivan

LONDONDERRY Two businesses cited for safety violations in connection with the death of construction worker Robert Augeri of Londonderry earlier this year have reached settlement agreements with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, according to OSHA spokesman John Chavez.

Brox Industries of Dracut, Mass., and Lewis Maynard Trucking of Methuen, Mass., have both agreed to correct safety violations and have received reduced fines.

Augeri, 31, died June 3 while working on a highway paving project in the northbound lane of Interstate 495 in Lawrence, Mass. A Mack dump truck backed into him in the closed left travel lane near Merrimack Street (Exit 44).

Augeri worked for Brox, the company which contracted with the Massachusetts Highway Department for the repaving job.

The Mack truck was driven by Robert McCann, 25, of Methuen, a subcontractor employed by Lewis Maynard Trucking. McCann and his passenger, Christina DeForte, 23, also of Methuen, were not hurt in the accident.
