Man electrocuted when truck hits lines
A Zanesville man was killed Friday when the dump truck he was operating at Simco Peabody Inc.'s Broken Aro Mine on County Road 6 came into contact with power lines, according to news release from the Coschocton County Sheriff''s Department.
According to the release, Raymond L. Harper, 41, apparently was electrocuted at about 2 p.m. when the raised bed of his dump truck struck Simco Peabody power lines carrying 12,500 volts of electricity.
Harper was driving a truck owned by Marple Brothers Trucking of Zanesville and was dumping dirt. Fire destroyed the truck.
In a written statement to deputies, Mike R. Swingle of Crooksville, who was driving another truck at the scene, said that after Harper's truck struck the power lines, Harper, who was in the truck, opened his door and grabbed the lever that lowers the truck bed.
Swingle said he thought Harper then jumped to the ground, but Sheriff Deputy David Wilson, who was the first officer at the scene, told The Tribune he believes this is when Harper was electrocuted. He said Harper was thrown 10-15 feet.
Harper probably did not know an electrical current was running through the truck, Wilson said. According to him, it is possible Harper did not think the power lines were functional.
The Coshocton Emergency Squad transported Harper to Coshocton County Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival, a CCMH official said. She said Harper's body has been released to Bryan Funeral Home of Zanesville.
Firefighters from the Conesville and South Tuscarawas fire departments extinguished the fire that destroyed the truck, a 1972 Ford. Coshocton County REACT also was on the scene, according to deputies.
Wilson said he was told by a Simco Peabody official that Federal Mine Safety personnel will be notified of the incident because it happened on Simco Peabody property.
