Work accident kills Latonia man



The Cincinnati Enquirer

FAIRFAX - A construction worker from Latonia died Monday morning after he was struck in the head by a 1,000-pound steel plate at Red Bank Road and Fair Lane.

Paul Lindsay, 31, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The "gentleman had a severe head injury from a steel plate that was being lifted," Fairfax Police Chief Rick Patterson said. "It was being lifted up and moved, and when it moved it struck the gentleman in the back of the head.''

The accident happened shortly before 11 a.m.

Lindsay was part of a construction crew working to reroute Little Duck Creek to alleviate flooding in the area. He was an employee of Total Excavating of Dayton, Ohio.

Officials from Total Excavating did not immediately return a phone call Monday.
