Recycling worker struck and killed by loader in Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, IN (AP) - Police say a worker at a Fort Wayne metal recycling facility died after being run over by a front-end loader.

The man was injured Thursday at the OmniSource plant east of the city's downtown and died a short time later at a hospital. Police say the worker was standing near the 30-ton loader when the driver didn't see him while turning it.

Authorities did not immediately release the worker's name.
