1 worker killed, 1 injured in Dalton accident

DALTON, Ga. (AP) - A construction worker is dead and another in
critical condition after the utility pole they were installing fell
into power lines.

Officials say 44-year-old Glenn Stone of Chatsworth was killed in the accident at a shopping center Monday in Dalton. Fifty-four-year-old Jerry Shelton is at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta.

The pair was helping steady a metal pole being installed at Dalton Plaza South. The pole tipped over into power lines, electrocuting Stone and badly burning Shelton.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Marietta office is investigating the accident.
