WISCASSET, Maine (AP) - Police in Maine said a man died in a workplace accident in which a scissor lift he was using tipped over at a job site.

The accident killed James Thompson, 58, of Yarmouth, police said. Thompson was painting the inside of a garage at Atlantic Motorcar Center in Wiscasset from a 12-foot scissor lift when a garage door opened and hit the lift’s cage, the Portland Press Herald reported.

Police said Thompson died at the scene on Friday. He had been employed by Theodore Logan & Son Inc. of Portland.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office are both responding to Thompson’s death, police said.
