The Courier News received confirmation Thursday afternoon that an accident took place at Nucor-Yamato Steel, located on Highway 18 east of Blytheville.
Reportedly, an unidentified worker was struck by an I-beam, which apparently pinned his leg. First responders had him flown to The Regional Medical Center in Memphis. His condition was unknown.
Nucor-Yamato's Keith Prevost confirmed the incident Thursday evening. Prevost said the man's injuries were not considered serious, and that he was flown to The Med mainly as a precaution.
