DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - Ford Motor Co. says a 55-year-old contract worker has died after falling from a crane at a Detroit-area plant.

The fall at Dearborn Diversified Manufacturing Plant happened Wednesday morning. The Wayne County Medical Examiner said Thursday that Ricky Mcintosh died at a hospital from multiple injuries, and his death was ruled accidental.

Ford says in a statement it’s cooperating with investigators and the “safety and security of everyone in our plants is our highest priority.”

WWJ-AM reports the man fell about 50 feet.

Michigan Occupational Health and Safety Administration spokeswoman Tanya Baker told The Detroit News it sent a compliance officer to the plant and opened an investigation that could take weeks or months.
