Ohio Man Killed in Kentucky Construction Accident

Comments Off

An Ohio man was tragically killed in a construction accident on Monday in eastern Kentucky.

The accident occurred just after noon on Monday in Leslie County. Several people were working at the construction site on a log cabin when it gave way and collapsed, investigators said.

Everyone one was able to escape in time with the exception of a 33-year-old man. He was trapped beneath a beam and later pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident happened when several men were trying to jack up one side of the cabin to slide a railroad die beneath it when the structure began to collapse.
