Ohio utility worker suffers fatal workplace accident

Some of our Columbus readers may have heard that a tragic accident occurred recently when two Ohio utility workers were working in the state of New York. The two men were employed by CTS Telecommunications, of Orrville, Ohio, and were apparently working on the shoulder of a road in New York when the tragic workplace accident occurred. According to reports, the two men, a 49-year-old from Crown City, Ohio, and a 26-year-old were standing near the arm of their bucket truck when a car veered onto the shoulder of the road and struck both men.
