Federal and state investigators are trying to determine what caused a deadly accident Tuesday at the site of the Wynn Boston Harbor resort and casino that is under construction in Everett.

Joe Teixeira, 56, of Seekonk was operating an excavator at the south end of the construction site and taking apart a trench box when the incident occurred around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan’s office said in a statement. He reportedly regained consciousness at the scene before being taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he later died.

“This is a very sad day for everyone at Wynn Boston Harbor. Our deepest condolences and heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to his family and coworkers,” Wynn Boston Harbor said in a statement.
