Tucson police identify woman killed in construction accident

Law and order

Tucson police have identified a worker killed in an industrial-equipment accident on Tucson’s south side last Thursday.

Hallie Dubey, 51, was working for Eagle Rock Excavating at a site near Benson Highway and Alvernon Way when she was struck by a piece of equipment, said Officer Ray Smith, a Tucson police spokesman.

Officers were called to the scene at 1:30 p.m. and determined the incident was an accident, Smith said.

The Arizona Department of Occupational Safety and Health is investigating the incident, but doesn’t comment on pending investigations, a spokesman said. 

Dave Gerovac, owner of Eagle Rock, said he couldn't comment on the incident, citing the ongoing investigation.

He said Dubey was a "a longtime valued employee.'

"It was just a tragic accident," Gerovac said. "We haven't had a major accident in the history of my company, and it hit everybody pretty hard."

Founded in 2001, Eagle Rock employ about 200 people, Gerovac said.
