LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a man killed in a construction accident at a downtown Lincoln parking garage.

He was identified as Rocael Lopez-Lopez, a 47-year-old Crete resident, Lincoln police said Monday.

The accident happened Friday afternoon on the top floor of the Que Place garage, which is being used as a staging area for a condominium-office project being built next to the garage.

Lopez-Lopez was assembling a metal form for a wall when the form fell on him.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate.
