LANCASTER, Pa. - Authorities say a man is dead after an accident involving a piece of construction equipment at a central Pennsylvania power plant.

The Lancaster County coroner's office says it happened around 8 a.m. Thursday at the PPL plant in Holtwood. Fifty-nine-year-old Bruce Hardy, of Bainbridge, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lissette Santana, a spokeswoman for PPL, says he was an employee of a Chicago-based construction company. The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports the victim was doing excavation work to make room for the expansion of the plant. Santana said she couldn't give any other details about the accident.

She says the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating and work on the project has been stopped.
