Two federal teams investigate crane fatality

August 26, 1999
By: Stacy Covitz
State Capital Bureau

A second federal team joins the investigation into Wednesday's deadly crane accident in Bridgeton. Stacy Covitz has more from Jefferson City.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been working on the investigation, and now the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health will join them. The investigation could take up to six months.

Russell Willenberg was killed when a crane used to lift parts of a roof fell on top of him.

A spokesman for OSHA wouldn't comment on how the investigation is going so far, but by law, it must be wrapped up within the next six months.

From the state capitol, this has been Stacy Covitz.
