COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. — A worker who was trapped in machinery died at the Weyerhaeuser sawmill in Cottage Grove.

He was identified by the Lane County sheriff’s office as 31-year-old Justin Simons.

KVAL reports he was free of machinery when South Lane County Fire and Rescue arrived Tuesday afternoon but died at the scene of his injuries.

The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Agency says Simon was fatally injured in a sawdust conveyer. He was a 7-year employee of the mill.
