Police say Arris Tunc of Clifton was working at a site where an apartment complex is being built near the Crowne Plaza hotel.

Tunc was 45 feet up in the basket of a boom lift when the four-wheeled base tipped over and threw him off. He landed in the roadway.

The 34-year-old was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Meadowlands Parkway remained closed for most of the afternoon and was expected to reopen by about 5 p.m.
