The Greenville County coroner has identified the worker who was electrocuted Tuesday afternoon .

48-year-old Marty Dale Whitmire, of Liberty, died when he was electrocuted while paving E. Mountain Creek Road near State Park Road.

Authorities say it appears that a dump truck clipped a power line, causing the power pole to flex and crack causing the power lines to drop down and touch Whitmire's body.

The accident is still under investigation.
