BASTROP, La. (AP) - Morehouse Parish deputies say one man is dead and another injured in an industrial accident at the Drax Biomass plant 12 miles north of Bastrop.

Sheriff Mike Tubbs tells The News Star (http://bit.ly/1t4YZ9z) a 911 call was received around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and deputies and a MedLife ambulance responded to the scene.

Tubbs says one man, with minor injuries, was taken to a Bastrop hospital. He says the other man was airlifted to St. Francis Regional Medical Center, where he later died.

Tubbs says both men were sub-contractors from out-of-state. He said details of the accident could not be released at the time.

Tubbs said OSHA is conducting an investigation.

Drax Biomass focuses on manufacturing wood pellets for renewable low-carbon power generation from sustainable biomass.
