Industrial Accident Kills One East Texan

An early morning industrial accident on Wednesday, at an East Texas Tank company, has left one person dead.

Arp Fire officials say it happened at the Baker Tank Company on Highway 64 East, just north of Arp.

Justice of the Peace James Meredith says a couple of Baker Tank employees were working on the tank, trying to move it. That's when the tank rolled onto 46 year-old Efrain Flores crushing him. The tank weighed about 2,500 lbs-3,000lbs.

Judge Meredith says Flores' body has been sent for an autopsy and he expects O.S.H.A. will be out to investigate.
