Oilfield Worker Killed in Converse County

A Casper man was killed while working at an oilfield site in Converse County on June 23rd. The worker was pronounced dead on the scene after a crane boom fell on him. He leaves behind his wife, their infant son, his parents, and many other loved ones.

Now, the cause of the accident is under investigation by OSHA and the Wyoming Workforce Services. The investigation is expected to continue for several weeks.

Despite being seriously impacted by the oil crash in 2020, Converse County continues to be the number one producer of crude oil in Wyoming. The chief deputy administrator for the state workforce office said that Wyoming has improved its workplace safety in recent years. However, there have been several instances of fatal oilfield accidents like this one in the past decade, including truck accidents and oil rig explosions in Converse County.

Our wrongful death attorneys are following this investigation closely. Our hearts go out to the family of the young man killed in this tragedy.
