HANNIBAL (WGEM) - An incident at Central Stone Company on Monday led to a fatality, according to Vice President of Community and Governmental Relations at RiverStone Group Brian Dockery.

Dockery said the incident involved a haul truck.

Dockery reported the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is on scene investigating.

MSHA confirmed the incident happened around 11:25 a.m. and classified it as a “Powered Haulage” accident, but no additional information was available.

The MSHA website shows this is the 20th death so far this year across the nation.

There have been two others regionally:

  • On January 30, a miner died in Clay County, Missouri, when he fell about 35 feet to the ground through a void in the walkway where a piece of grating had been removed.
  • On March 18, a miner died at a coal mine in Hamilton County, Illinois, when a section of roof fell while he and other miners were building cribs during the recovery of longwall shields.
