A 31-year-old man died Tuesday afternoon in an industrial accident in Saratoga Springs.
The accident occurred near 800 W. 1200 North, where Diamond S Co., a subcontractor, was working on a Questar Gas project. About 1:30 p.m., employee Nickolaus Blatnick was pulled into an asphalt zipper that was being used to excavate a portion of the roadway.
Workers on scene tried to shut off the machinery and immediately called 911. But Blatnick, a Salt Lake County resident, had died instantly.
