HIGHGATE, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a farm worker injured while working on a hay baler has died.

Police say 21-year-old Rene Longley of Enosburg Falls died Friday after being injured earlier in the day in Highgate, a northwestern Vermont town near the Canadian border. They say a preliminary investigation determined the 11:30 a.m. accident was caused by a jack failure.

Longley initially was taken to the Northwestern Medical Center in St. Albans and later transported to the Vermont Medical Center in Burlington.
