SALISBURY, N.C. (WBTV) - Police in Salisbury have confirmed that one person was killed while on the job at a local industrial facility on Thursday.

Reaver Boone Vaughn, 61, died at the Granges location on Jake Alexander Boulevard. Police arrived at the facility just before 3:30 a.m.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s preliminary investigation determined that the victim had been in an accident involving a forklift.

The local OSHA division is reviewing the circumstances surrounding the fatal accident. No further information will be released until a report is finalized, according to the agency.

Granges America is in aluminum engineering, manufacturing and innovation.

In February 2019, three workers were assessed by emergency responders after a blast from inside a large furnace blew a steel door some 50 yards across the room at the Granges facility.
