It’s thought the man, believed to be from Ballycastle, became trapped under a heavy vehicle.
The Health and Safety Executive NI has said it is aware of a workplace incident that occurred in the Carrickfergus area this morning and enquiries are being made.
“My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the gentleman involved at such a difficult time,” he added.
“I would also like to pay tribute to all of the emergency services, including the Air Ambulance crew, for all their efforts.”
Causeway Coast and Glens councillor, Padraig McShane, said the community is “stunned”.
“We have lost one of the good guys in life – a dear friend to all who knew him,” he added.
The Knockagh Road remains closed and motorists have been advised to seek an alternative route.
