Truck driver killed at Cemex Florida plant

A cement plant worker died after an industrial accident yesterday, deputies in Hernando County said.

The accident happened at about 9 am Wednesday. Ismael Santana, who was delivering the day’s first load of ash, when hit by a loader at the Cemex plant near Brooksville, Florida, (pictured right) according to the sheriff’s office.

Santana, 51, from Spring Hill, was getting out of his truck when the loader backed into him, pinning him against the cabin of his own truck.  The driver of the loader apparently did not see Santana and backed into him while moving debris, pinning him against the cabin of his truck, the sheriff’s office said.

Santana was taken to Bayfront Health Brooksville, where he later died.

The accident is under investigation by the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office and the Mine Safety and Health Administration.

Santana’s death is the 16th mine fatality in the nation this year, according to the MSHA. It is the first such incident this year in Florida, according to MSHA records.
