Indiana Coal Mine Accident Kills Three

A Kentucky man is one of the victims of an accident at an Indiana coal mine.

Three workers were constructing an air-shaft at Gibson County Coal.

They were in a basket that transports people through a 600-ft. air-shaft when the fatal accident occurred.

One of the workers was from Virginia, another from Wyoming and the third was identified as Jarred Ashmore of Henderson, Ky.

All three men died from multiple blunt impact trauma from the fall.

Frontier-Kemper Contractors of Evansville is the company that's building the shaft.

The mine is owned by Oklahoma-based Alliance Resource Partners
