An employee of Virginia Glass Products was killed after several hundred pounds of glass fell upon him, according to the Martinsville Bulletin.
The Associated Press reports that 24-year-old Damarcus Laquan Calloway was loading the glass onto a truck when it fell and crushed him at Virginia Glass Products’ facility in Ridgeway, Va. He was given medical treatment at the scene before being airlifted to a hospital in North Carolina, where he was later pronounced dead.
The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry is investigating. The initial investigation could take up to six months to be completed.
Virginia Glass Products fabricates all-glass entrance doors, mirrors, glass shower enclosures and architectural tempered and laminated glass.
The company had not responded to USGNN™’s request for comment as of press time.
