Work resumes at GM stamping plant after explosion

MARION – Employees have returned to work at a General Motors metal-stamping plant following a chemical explosion that killed a contractor and injured several others.

GM spokeswoman Stephanie Jentgen said the Marion plant’s first-shift employees reported for work Wednesday morning at the plant.

The plant was evacuated following Tuesday’s explosion involving a tank of chlorine dioxide that killed 48-year-old contractor James L. Gibson.

Jentgen said four workers injured in the blast were held for observation at a local hospital, but have been released. She said an investigation into what caused the explosion is underway.

GM’s website said the Marion plant employs about 1,600 workers and provides blanks, stampings and sheet metal assembly for vehicles to GM assembly plants across North America.
