A construction worker was killed on the job at Berkeley's Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School Tuesday afternoon, a Berkeley school district spokesman said.

The worker, part of a crew contracted by the Berkeley Unified School District, was rebuilding a running track at the middle school, located at 1781 Rose St.

He was struck and killed by a truck at about 12:30 p.m., school district spokesman Mark Coplan said.

The school opens Wednesday, he said.
