Worker Killed in Logging Accident

At 10:26 A.M. this morning, Hoover 911 received a call of a 51 year-old male injured at the Wilborn Lake subdivision construction site, located near the end of Stadium Trace Parkway. A log was being moved by a piece of equipment when it fell onto the victim standing below. First-Aid was administered by other members of the logging crew as well as Hoover Fire & Rescue, but the victim was pronounced deceased on the scene. All indications are that there was no foul play associated with the victim’s death. He was an employee for Randolph & Randolph Logging Company of Centreville, which was harvesting the timber at the site. His name is being withheld pending formal notification of his family.
