OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating a southwestern Nebraska produce company after learning one of the company’s workers was killed on the job last week.

The North Platte Telegraph reported last week that 56-year-old Michael Nelson was hospitalized Oct. 24 after being hit in the head by a metal beam while helping move potatoes at his job at Frenchman Valley Produce in Wallace. OSHA says it learned that Nelson died from head injuries on Oct. 27. The agency said Frenchman Valley did not report his death to OSHA as required.

A woman who answered the phone at Frenchman Valley Produce in Imperial said no one was available early Thursday afternoon to comment. She refused to take a message.
