LORAIN, Ohio – An investigation is underway into an accident at a northern Ohio steel plant that has left one worker dead.

Authorities said the fatal accident happened Friday in the train yard at Republic Steel in Lorain. A 62-year-old man who worked on a train crew at the steel plant was killed.

A union official says the worker who was a longtime Republic Steel employee was riding on the side of a train car when it hit a set of parked train cars.

The man’s name was not released. He died at the scene.

Workers were sent home after the accident and production was stopped.
