Powerful Legal Representation for Workers Affected by the Kentucky UPS Facility Explosion
On May 30, an explosion occurred at a Kentucky UPS facility in Lexington. Although there were initially concerns that the blast could have been tied to a terror attack, authorities later reported that was unlikely and stated that the explosion appeared to be accidental. According to a spokesman for the United Parcel Service (UPS), 12 employees were on site at the time of the incident. Up to six people were taken to the hospital for observation with some reports stating that two other people sustained more serious injuries in the blast.
The UPS spokesman said that early reports point to a materials leak being the cause of the explosion.
The fire department’s public information officer stated that the building where the blast occurred is primarily used for truck and trailer maintenance. “There was significant damage to the building,” she said. According to her statement, the roof was blown out, interior walls were knocked down, and there was exterior damage. Currently, crews are arriving at the scene so that they can better stabilize the building.
