The shale gas drilling explosion from last February in which a 27-year-old contracted worker and future father was killed has been settled. The explosion, which happened in February 2014 in Dunkard, Greene County, PA, killed the man as he and another worker were rushing toward the blast area after hearing a loud hissing noise. The man worked for Cameron International Corporation, a company contracted by Chevron to work the well site. The victim, who was from Warren, PA, has had an estate set up for his son. The victim died before his boy was born.
It may still be months before South Carolina investigators will learn what happened to cause a five-vehicle accident involving commercial trucks that killed five people, including a 7-month-old and a couple from Johnstown, PA.
