THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn. -- A man was killed in a Thief River Falls construction accident earlier this month.

An employee was pinned between an I-beam and lift while installing bolts at the Digi-Key construction site at 601 Barzen Ave. S. on Nov. 6, said James Honerman, communications director for Minnesota OSHA.

The man was severely injured and brought to the hospital, Thief River Falls Police Chief Dick Wittenberg said. The man died sometime last week, according to Wittenberg.

Honerman said the state OSHA department opened an investigation Nov. 13 to determine the cause of the accident and whether OSHA standards were violated. The investigation is ongoing and the man's identity has not been made public.
