OKFUSKEE COUNTY, Okla. -- An accident on a drilling rig in Oklahoma just outside of Seminole took the life of a 22-year-old roughneck.
Deputies say Randy Jackson of Holdenville had just started his shift on a Bronco drilling rig when he was hit in the head with a 500 pound steel pipe wrench, decapitating him.
This is the county's second fatal drilling accident in two months.
Bronco drilling is based out of Edmond but operates rigs in Carter, Love, Murray, Coal, and Pontotoc counties.
OSHA has been called in to investigate.
