Authorities Investigate Deadly Industrial Accident

An industrial accident Tuesday is now under investigation, after a Levelland construction worker was killed on the job.

The incident happened just after 4 o'clock Tuesday near the Brownfield Highway and Indiana. Rusty Sanders was operating a piece of heavy machinery, called a Pipe Crane, when it toppled over. Sanders was left trapped between the crane and a trench. Rescue crews managed to free Sanders after several minutes. He was then taken to University Medical Center where he later died.

Sanders was part of a construction crew, working on utility relocation for the Marsha Sharp Freeway Project.
