Two injured in Elkton factory accident

(ELKTON) -- Huron County Sheriff's Deputies responded to an accident this (Monday) morning around 8:00 a.m. at Tower Automotive in Elkton. Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson says a 61-year old Sebewaing man and a 60-year old Port Austin man were injured when a high-pressure air line burst. Both men were taken to Scheurer Hospital by Elkton and Scheurer Ambulance Services before being airlifted to an out of the area hospital. There was no immediate word of their conditions, but Tower Automotive spokesman Derek Fiebeg says the company is thankful that "the injuries were non-life threatening in nature." The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.
