SW Missouri man dies in plant accident
OZARK (AP) - A southwest Missouri man died after he was hit by a front-end loader at a quarry for a construction company.
Christian County Coroner Brad Cole said 73-year-old Robert Shelby Hill of Clever died Tuesday morning at the quarry for the Leo Journagan Construction Company.
Cole says Hill was waiting to load a dump truck when he walked across a road and was hit by the loader.
CEO Allen Journagan says Hill worked for a subcontractor of the construction company. He says his company has a good safety record.
A federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration compliance officer will investigate the accident.
