Driveway sealing employee struck, killed by pickup truck on the job

State police are investigating a fatal pedestrian accident involving a driveway sealing worker in Jefferson County.

Around 12:16 p.m. on Saturday troopers responded to the fatal accident, which happened on Snowshoe Road in the town of Henderson.


The investigation has determined a local paving company was sealing a blacktop driveway at the residence when a fellow worker attempted to move a 2001 Ford pickup truck and trailer up the steep driveway.

The driver stated the pickup truck lost power/brakes and began to roll back, causing the trailer to strike 55-year-old Matthew F. Bondellio Sr., an Adams Center resident who was directly behind the trailer.

The investigation remains active.
