LAKEVILLE: John Higgins Killed In Industrial Accident After Chute Became Jammed On The Covered Hopper Rail Car

February 2, 2017 Construction Accidents

WORK ACCIDENT ENDS IN TRAGEDY

LAKEVILLE, NEW YORK (February 1, 2017) – An industrial worker was killed in a fatal accident after becoming trapped in a car, according to the Evening Tribune.

The worker has been identified as John Higgins who was an employee for Crop Production Services.

John Higgins was unloading fertilizer from a rail car when the chute became jammed.

John attempted to clear the hopper rail car but was unsuccessful. Medics arrived at the scene of the accident, but they were not able to revive him.

Our thoughts and prayers at the RMFW Law Firm are with the family of John Higgins as they cope with such an incredible loss. We encourage the police to investigate this accident thoroughly. We hope that concrete steps are taken to ensure that a similar accident will not happen a second time.
