Wind turbine collapse kills one, injures second worker  

One man was killed and another injured Saturday after a wind turbine collapsed in Sherman County.

Deputy Shull with the Sherman County Sheriff’s office said the two men involved were working on a non-operational turbine at the Klondike Wind Farms east of Wasco Oregon.

Officials said one worker who was at the top of the turbine was killed when it buckled. A second man had to be rescued from the barrel of the collapsed structure. He was taken to an area hospital where his condition was unknown.

Deputy Shull said OHSHA was investigating the cause of the collapse.
