Area man dies in gypsum plant accident

Posted: Updated:

An area man is dead after what officials are calling a tragic industrial accident.

The Wheeler County Sheriff tells us 59-year-old James Winegeart was pronounced dead Saturday morning at the Harrison Gypsum plant in Shamrock.

The sheriff says Winegeart died in an accident involving mining equipment, and the sheriff's office is not investigating further.

The gypsum plant has refused to answer our questions on how the accident happened.
