HAMPTON - Police say a man was killed Wednesday in an accident at a Hampton business.

It happened around 9:00 a.m. at Craft Machine, a custom manufacturing facility at 2102 48th Street.

Authorities have not identified the man or the circumstances of the accident, but they say the 54-year-old Newport News resident was working on or near a large piece of equipment that resembles a trailer.

'Its my understanding that he was doing the job that he was working on by himself,' said police spokesman Sgt. Jason Price.

Price said department's preliminary investigation doesn't indicate anything criminal in the incident.

Investigators with the Occupational Health and Safety Administration from Va. Beach will investigate the incident.
