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.
The 59-year-old man was pinned against another piece of equipment. Juan Manual Estrada-Duarte of Big Spring was taken to a hospital where he later died.
Earthco is based in Big Spring.
