NEW YORK An unidentified
man was killed in an accident at a Sims Metal Management Ltd.
A company spokesman said that a
"longtime customer" suffered fatal injuries when he was struck
while unloading a junk vehicle from his own flatbed carrier at
the New York-based companys North Haven, Conn., facility.
Sims employees responded immediately with first aid and
notified emergency services.
No company personnel were involved in the accident, a Sims
spokesman said. "We are working diligently with state and local
law enforcement and with (the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration) in their investigations while the remainder of
our facility remains open."
