MIDDLETOWN SPRINGS, Vt.  — State police say a utility worker has been killed on the job in Middletown Springs.

They say 53-year-old Russell Callahan was installing high speed internet service Wednesday afternoon when part of the bucket truck he was operating hit a power line. Authorities say he was electrocuted and then fell backward and hit his head.

Callahan, of North Palm Beach, Fla., was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities say because of the electrocution and head injury, it’s unclear exactly how he died. An autopsy will be performed.

State police say he worked for Adirondack Utility Construction, which was being subcontracted by VTEL.
