Wyoming Man Killed in ND Work Incident

A Wyoming man has died in a construction incident in North Dakota.

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A Wyoming man has died in a construction incident in North Dakota.

Authorities on Wednesday did not immediately identify the 24-year-old man who was killed late Tuesday afternoon near Minot.

Ward County Sheriff's Capt. Todd Keller told KCJB that the man was working on a skid-steer loader when the front end came down on top of him, killing him. Keller says some safety pins apparently were not in place.

Keller says the man was working for Clark's Heavy Equipment and Field Service Repair, an oil field service company based in Belle Fourche, S.D.
