TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police say the construction worker who died after being hit by a pickup Wednesday evening was Patrick Boyle, 59.

Police said Boyle worked for Becco Construction and was setting up traffic cones along the curb in the 7600 block of East 51st Street when he was struck.

Police say the driver of the pickup pulled over several blocks away and called her husband, telling him she thought she'd hit a traffic cone. Officers located the woman and told her she'd hit a worker.

Officers say Boyle was dragged about 25 feet.  

Paramedics took Boyle to the hospital where he later died.

Police said Boyle was wearing a reflective vest and the driver was obeying the speed limit. The woman reportedly said she saw the worker and took evasive action.

Investigators are awaiting the results of a blood alcohol test to determine whether the woman was impaired at the time of the crash.
