Mississippi man who was electrocuted is identified

TERRY, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a Mississippi man who was electrocuted has been identified.

WLBT-TV reported Thursday that Hinds County Sheriff's officials identified 25-year-old Christopher Bias as the man who was electrocuted.

Major Pete Luke says a dump truck loaded with asphalt touched an overhead power line, causing the truck to be electrically charged.

News outlets report a paving company was working on a private driveway when the incident occurred. Authorities say co-workers attempted CPR on the victim, but he did not respond.

Luke says this appears to be a tragic accident.
