A city of Bryan employee has died from injuries sustained Monday when his bucket truck was struck by a tractor trailer.
Alex Constancio, 50, died Tuesday afternoon at St. Joseph Regional Health Center in Bryan.
Constancio was inside the raised bucket making repairs to a traffic signal on Highway 21 and FM 2818 when his truck was hit by a passing 18-wheeler.
The impact tossed him about 25 feet to the ground causing extensive injuries.
Constancio spent more than 18 years as a city of Bryan employee in the Transportation Department. He began his tenure with the city as a Traffic Technician and rose to the position of Transportation Supervisor.
“Employees like Alex are models who set the standard for excellence,” said City Manager David Watkins. “We are deeply saddened by this loss and our hearts reach out to Alex’s family.”
“Alex is a rare individual who everyone liked,” said Alex’s supervisor, Alton Rogers, Assistant Public Works Director. “We have lost a tremendously dedicated employee and we have lost an even better friend.”
Constancio leaves behind a wife, Linda, and two daughters. Funeral arrangements are pending.
