The company is not releasing the name of the injured employee because they hadn't checked with the family by press time, ac- cording to AMCOL Environmental Health and Safety Director Kelvin Roth. AMCOL is the parent company of ACC and CETCO. Roth and AMCOL Director of Manufactur- ing Jeff Campbell were at the Lowell plant Tuesday to meet with plant manager Steve Wilkerson and other ACC employees. They were waiting Tuesday morning for a team from the Mine Safety and Health Adminis- tration to arrive to begin an investigation about the injury. The employee was initially taken to North Big Horn Hospital and flown to Den- ver Health Hospital for treatment. The in- jury was to the employee's right hand and forearm, according to plant officials. Officials said they have sealed access to the area in the plant where the accident occurred, and they have evaluated the rest of the plant to ensure safety. "What happens in one of our plants af- fects all of us," Roth said. "I'm sure Lowell is a tight-knit community. So is AMCOL." The team expected MSHA representa- tives to arrive mid-day Tuesday to begin the investigation. "The goal of the investigation is to find out what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again," Roth said. Plant Manager Steve Wilkerson said the plant would provide more details about the outcome of the investigation as they be- come available.

July 3: Deputies responded to a reported rollover ac- cident on U.S. 14A east of Lowell near the Medicine Wheel. The accident oc- curred when driver Dale Williams of Billings lost control of his Chevrolet sub- urban with a 24-foot camp- er. The truck and trailer rolled, causing partial road- way blockage. Williams and his three child passengers were not seriously injured. Blackburn said there was little damage caused to the suburban, but the trailer was significantly damaged.
