Man Hurt in Oil Field Accident in Converse County
GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A man suffered a head injury in an accident over the weekend at an oil field in northeast Wyoming.
Converse County Sheriff Clint Becker said the man was working at an oil wellhead about a mile south of the Campbell County-Converse County line when a pipe burst because of a pressure issue, and a pipe or pipe fitting hit his head.
Becker says the man was conscious and awake prior to being transported Saturday to Wyoming Medical Center in Casper.
The name of the man was not released and no other details were immediately available.
