Man killed in Fort Worth construction accident

A man died Thursday morning while trying to get a vehicle out of the mud at a far north Fort Worth construction site.

It happened around 8 a.m. at the site on Berkshire Lake Boulevard, near Highway 287 and Blue Mound Road.

Homicide detectives were called to the scene, but just to help with the investigation. Police said they are treating the case as an accident.
