    A construction worker was struck and killed by an asphalt roller Saturday in Fairfax County.

    Edgar Tobar, 40, of Woodbridge, was standing near a roadway at a construction site when another employee lost control of the roller, which "ran over" Tobar, according to Fairfax County Police.

    Tobar was transported to a local hospital in life-threatening condition.  He later died.

    No criminal charges will be filed, according to police.  Occupational Health and Safety Administration will investigate the incident.
