Ford worker dies after incident

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Ford Motor Co. worker has died after an
accident at the Kentucky Truck Plant.
The Jefferson County Coroner's office Sunday identified the
victim as 54-year-old Ronald S. Cassady of Louisville.
Deputy Coroner Jim Wesley said Cassady was pronounced dead
Saturday morning at University Hospital of multiple blunt force
injuries.
The Kentucky Truck Plant, which employs more than 4,000 workers,
makes the Ford F250-F550, Super Duty, Lincoln Navigator, and the
Expedition, according to the Ford Web site.
Ford spokeswoman Marcey Evans says the plant was down for
maintenance and construction at the time of the accident, which she
said is under investigation by the company and the workers' union,
United Auto Workers Local 862.
Evans said Cassady was a 16-year veteran of the Kentucky Truck
Plant.
