Worker injured in accident dies

YOUNGSTOWN -- One of two workers hurt in an industrial accident at Penn Ohio Logistics in Austintown remained in critical condition Thursday night in St. Elizabeth Health Center after the other injured worker died earlier in the day.
Lawrence Boatwright, 46, continued to be treated in the hospital.
Raymond Queen, 39, of Severn Court S.E., Warren, died at 4:07 a.m., said Rick Jamrozik, an investigator with the Mahoning County coroner's office. Jamrozik said an autopsy was to be done Thursday.
Queen and Boatwright were injured when steel bars fell through a concrete floor at the company's steel warehouse on Hendricks Road around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Penn Ohio Logistics is one of several businesses in an industrial complex, site of the former Youngstown Steel Door, that sits on land between Hendricks Road and Connecticut Avenue.
Eric Peterson, an OSHA compliance officer, toured Penn Ohio Logistics on Wednesday.
Austintown Assistant Fire Chief Andrew Frost III said structural engineers will determine how much load the floor could have withstood and how much weight was on it.
Frost said OSHA's findings will likely be released in four months. He said engineers will determine what parts of the building can be used again.
