HUGER, S.C. (AP) - Authorities are investigating an industrial accident that killed a man at a Berkeley County steel plant.

Plant officials say the accident happened Thursday at the Nucor Steel plant in Huger in an equipment shop where repairs are made. The details of the accident are still under investigation.

Coroner Bill Salisbury is not releasing the name of the worker until relatives are notified.

Workers at the plant melt scrap metal to recast it into sheet metal and I-beams. The plant employs more than 900 people.
