4 Workers Injured After Hitting Power Line in Metal Plant


Four workers have been injured after a jackhammer hit an underground power line at a plant in Fayette County.

A Fayette County emergency dispatcher says the workers suffered flash burns and were taken to area hospitals for treatment. Their conditions weren’t known.

The dispatcher, who declined to be identified, says the contact with the power line also caused a transformer to blow.

The accident occurred Tuesday at the WVA Manufacturing Plant in Alloy.

Other details weren’t immediately available.
