Worker Electrocuted In Gladewater Accident

An East Texas man is dead after apparently being electrocuted at a Gladewater business. Emergency crews were called out just before noon on Thursday at Texas Die Casting incorporated.  That's located in the 600 block of south Loop 485 in Gladewater.

Investigators say Estevan Castillo, 50, of Gladewater apparently came in contact with a power source while working at the plant. He was rushed to Good Shepherd hospital where he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy has been ordered in the case. OSHA is investigating the circumstances of Castillo's death.
