Two men are hospitalized after an industrial accident at a Marshall County well pad yesterday.
The 911 call came in right before 11 a.m. from the scene just off Rines Ridge in Proctor.
The men were taken to area hospitals after they were struck by a high pressure water line that blew off a water truck.
Both sustained head injuries. One of the victims was taken by medical helicopter to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, while the other was taken by ambulance to WVU Reynolds Memorial Hospital.
The injured men – ages 23 and 26 — were using the water truck to purge gas lines when the water line blew off and struck them.
The extent of their injuries is not yet known. Tug Hill, the operating company, has not released a statement.
