Workplace accident causes death at Nestle
The corporate headquarters of Nestle Waters North America has issued a statement concerning a fatality at the McBee bottling plant last night.
“A third-party truck driver passed away following a tragic trailer change accident that occurred in the exterior truck yard at our (McBee) Chesterfield County, South Carolina facility. We are deeply saddened by this incident, and our hearts go out to the family and friends of the driver. We are working with the third-party trucking company and responding authorities to understand what happened and will continue to support them with the investigation. To assist both the investigation and our employees, we have temporarily ceased operations at the facility and have made employee support resources available to our local team.”
According to Chesterfield County Coroner Kip Kiser, who was at the scene last night, this incident is not a law enforcement matter.
