West Texas authorities say another man has died in the second fatal oilfield-related accident in a week.

The Howard County Sheriff's Office says Earthco employees were working Thursday on a large heater tank used to prepare oil for transport when it rolled onto a man.

Earthco is based in Big Spring.
