Miner dies in vehicle accident at Sunrise Coal underground operation in Indiana

The U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration reported that a coal miner died March 16 at the Sunrise Coal LLC-operated Oaktown Fuels no. 1 mine in Indiana.

Jason Williams, 34, died from internal injuries he suffered when the mine transportation vehicle he was operating rolled over, according to local ABC affiliate WAWV.

Williams' death is the third coal mine fatality for the year.

Sunrise Coal is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hallador Energy Co. The Oaktown mine produced nearly 3.7 million tons of coal in 2017, according to Mine Safety and Health Administration data, and has received 53 citations so far this year for mine safety violations.
