Anderson Co. Man Dies In Work Related Accident

One man was killed at an Anderson County business Friday in an industrial accident.

According to Anderson County Coroner Don McCown, William Edward Martin, 28, of Anderson, died from a head injury while working on a large piece of machinery at STEC Equipment on Old Denver Rd.

McCown says that Martin was working on a front end loader, and had the boom supported by a forklift. During this routine procedure the boom began to slip off of the fork lift, which made the front end loader start to tip over. He got out of the vehicle and that is when the boom fell, hitting him in the head.

Martin reportedly leaves behind a wife and a six-month-old daughter. McCown says Martin also served in the Marine Corps prior to working at STEC.
