SPIRO, Okla. (AP) -- Investigations are under way into the death of a miner at a Spiro mine.
Ken Orton was crushed Monday night when the roof of a tunnel at South Central Coal Mines caved in.
Orton was a 10-year employee and electrician.
LeFlore County officials and Spiro police say they were not asked to investigate the incident.
The mining company says investigations are being conducted by federal and state authorities and that its own safety officials are involved.
A spokesman for South Central Coal Mines declined comment until the investigations are complete.
