Plaquemine, La (NBC33) — A local plant worker is reportedly dead after getting ran over by a cherry picker.
Witnesses say it happened at the Shintech Plant in Plaquemine this afternoon.
They tell us the victim walked behind the large machine and the driver never saw him.
We have not gotten a confirmation from Iberville Parish officials. Most offices were closed for All Saints Day.
Shintech was recently the site of another workplace mishap. Two other workers were killed there earlier this year.
