CELL TOWERS COLLAPSE
State police identify 2 workers, firefighter killed when cell towers collapse in Clarksburg

Reported by: Associated Press

CLARKSBURG, W.Va.


West Virginia State Police have released the names of two workers and a firefighter who were killed when two cellphone towers collapsed.

Lt. Michael Baylous on Sunday identified the workers as 32-year-old Kyle Kirkpatrick of Hulbert, Okla., and 27-year-old Terry Lee Richard Jr. of Bokoshe, Okla. He identified the firefighter as 28-old Michael Dale Garrett of Clarksburg, a member of the Nutter Fork Volunteer Fire Department.

Baylous says Kirkpatrick and Richard were working on a 300-foot cellphone tower Saturday when it collapsed in Clarksburg. Garrett was killed when a smaller cellphone tower weakened by the collapse also fell.

Two other workers suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The towers are owned by SBA Communications.

SBA Communications spokeswoman Lynne Hopkins says the company is saddened by the accident and is cooperating with investigators.
