Oil Rig Accident Kills Liberal Man
12/28/2009

AMES, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say an oil rig collapse in

northwestern Oklahoma has killed a Liberal man and injured another.

Emergency officials responded to the accident about a half-mile

east of Ames about 7:35 a.m. Saturday. Major County Sheriff's

Deputy Nick Holdeman says 31-year-old Gabriel Ovalle Tellez of

Liberal, Kan., died.

Holdeman says David Gonzalez of Hugoton, Kan., suffered broken

leg and other injuries. Gonzalez was taken to an Enid hospital.

Holdeman says members of the Tomcat Drilling crew told

authorities the rig collapsed a little after 6 a.m. He says the

Oklahoma Occupational and Safety Health Administration will

investigate the collapse.

Tomcat Drilling is based in Wichita, Kan.
