A male worker was killed after he was struck by a front-end loader in a Massachusetts industrial accident at Allied Waste Services in Peabody last month. According to police, the worker was clearing a drain when the incident happened. Joshua Black, 26, was from Wilmington.
First responders say that he was not breathing by the time they arrived. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the Peabody work accident.
In another recent Massachusetts industrial accident, also last month, co-workers found a 33-year-old worker injured on a conveyor belt in the Cargill Salt Company in Westfield. The belt is used to service a salt pile.
