BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Authorities say a 39-year-old Oregon man was killed in a landslide while doing contract work for Idaho Power to secure a rock shelf above a road on the Idaho-Oregon border.
The Idaho Statesman reports the Adams County Sheriff’s Office says deputies from Idaho and Oregon responded to a 911 call Saturday about an industrial accident in Hells Canyon.
According to the call, a landslide above a road between Oxbow and Hells Canyon Dam along the Snake River sent rocks and debris onto workers and equipment below.
Deputies found workers Stacy Keen of Tillamook, Oregon, suspended in a truck. Authorities say Keen was killed by rocks and debris.
