A 26-year-old project engineer in Texas was only on the job for two days before he was hit and killed by a dump truck Tuesday.

KHOU reported that the man had recently started working with OHL Construction as an engineer.

The man was walking back from lunch with some of his fellow engineers at about 12:30 p.m. to the construction zone on Highway 290 near Pinemont, Texas when he was struck by the dump truck as it was backing up.

The police did not release the victim’s name. Police also said they do not expect to press charges in connection to the death.
