An industrial accident claims the life of a Franklin County man. It happened at about 2:28 pm Thursday at Manitowoc Cranes, 1565 Buchanan Trail in Shady Grove.
Pennsylvania State Police identified the victim as Rickie Lee Grimsley, a company employee. The incident happened in a gravel parking lot on the west side of the cylinder building. Investigators say Grimsley was standing between one parked crane and another crane that was being moved by another employee. The moving crane suddenly turned sharply pinning Grimsley between the two cranes.
Grimsley was pronounced dead at the scene. His death has been ruled accidental.
