MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A central Indiana coroner says a contractor killed in an accident at a power plant died from blunt force trauma.

Morgan County Coroner Annette Rohlman says 50-year-old Rickey Brewer of Danville, Indiana, died in Wednesday morning’s accident at Indianapolis Power & Light’s Eagle Valley Generating Station.

IPL says the death occurred at the construction site of the new combined-cycle gas turbine power station in Morgan County near Martinsville.

The utility did not immediately release other details of the incident, but a Morgan County dispatcher told WRTV-TV the victim was pinned between a trailer and a truck.
