FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in San Bernardino County say a man has been killed and another injured in an industrial accident in Fontana.

Fontana police say county firefighters called to the Oldcastle Precast company at 7:19 a.m. Monday pronounced one man dead at the scene and took the other to a hospital with serious injuries. Authorities have not released their names.

A police press release says a preliminary investigation indicates the men were struck by a cable that possibly snapped while being rolled into coils under high pressure.

Investigations will be conducted by the district attorney's office and state occupational safety officials.
