Brooks County -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is now looking into what caused a crane to collapse at the LangBoard Wood plant in Quitman. The crane operator was killed.

25 year old Dwayne Andrew of Quitman was using the crane to move boxes at the plant Saturday when the crane started to collapse. He fell out the window and plunged 95 feet to the ground. OSHA is now investigating.

This isn't the first time Langboard has been investigated by OSHA. The company had two major violations in the last 10 years, but OSHA records don't show what the violations were. The last fatal accident at the plant was in 1997 when the metal grading of a catwalk slipped from under a worker.Langboard has not released a statement.
