Construction worker electrocuted in Ottawa County

OTTAWA COUNTY, MICHIGAN - Western Michigan authorities say a construction worker has been electrocuted in an on-the-job accident.

The Ottawa County sheriff's department tells WGHN-FM and WOOD-TV the 44-year-old man was driving a construction truck one morning when its boom touched a CMS Energy Corp. power line.

Scott Maxwell got out of the truck and then tried to re-enter it when he came in contact with the electrical charge.

Co-workers tried to revive the Coopersville man, but he was declared dead at Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids.

The accident happened at a house in Wright Township, about 145 miles west-northwest of Detroit.
