CLERMONT, Fla. (AP) - One central Florida man is dead and another is seriously injured after getting caught in a machine used to crush cement.
The accident happened Friday at DeWitt Excavating just east of Clermont.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office says two men became entangled in the cement crusher after going beneath it to see why it stopped working. Twenty-year-old Delmas Ramsey of Clermonth was killed. The second man, who police haven't identified, was seriously hurt, but able to free himself from the machine.
The cement crusher is about the size of a large van, with large teeth near the bottom that grind and crush road materials.
