Tuesday, February 19, 2008

SUGAR CREEK, Mo. (AP) -- Emergency crews are working to recover the body of a worker who was in a truck that tumbled down a ravine.

Fire and rescue officials say the effort at the Carefree Industrial Park in Sugar Creek could take many hours. The man was found pinned under the massive truck at the bottom of a 300-foot embankment.

The victim's identity was not released.

Officials say they might have to cut a new road to get equipment to the man and truck and remove them from the scene.

The accident happened about 10:30 p.m. Monday at the 24-hour quarry operation, which is on Missouri Highway 291.
