A special grand jury has begun hearing evidence in a criminal investigation into the death of a woman who was crushed by falling ceiling panels in one of Boston’s Big Dig tunnels.

Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly has said his investigation would determine whether anyone who worked on the $14.6 billion highway project should be charged with a crime in the July 10 accident that killed Milena Del Valle, 39.

A spokesman for Reilly said the grand jury began hearing evidence Tuesday.

Reilly has subpoenaed thousands of documents from the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority and several companies involved in the design and construction of the project.
