Wednesday May 02, 2018 9:07am
Innovation Park • Angola, IN

By: Sheila McCrea

A construction worker who was critically injured at the Innovation Park worksite last week has passed away from his injuries.

The Inovation Park project is located just west of Angola at the 20 and I-69 interchange.

Sources tell WLKI that a construction worker was working in a man hole when he sustained an injury that caused blunt force trauma to his head. Angola city and Steuben County emergency responders worked on the male subject for several minutes before he was transported to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne where he later passed away.

The victim has been indentified as Curtis Lee Collyer, age 34 of Coldwater.

Collyer was a employee of Carpentar Creations, who was subcontracted by API Construction. API was contracted by the city of Angola for the project.

Officials with the city of Angola, including the Mayor's office directed all questions on the matter to their attorney, Kim Shoup. When contacted, Mr. Shoup said, "the city has no comment" on the matter.

There are multiple contractors and subcontractors employed by different parties and entities working in the general area of the Innovation Park project.

OSHA inspectors have been on the scene since Monday investigating the matter.

At this time, no other information is available.
