Signal Peak mine worker killed

BILLINGS – The Musselshell County Sheriff’s Office releases the name of a Terry man who died in an accident at the Signal Peak Mine near Roundup Saturday. Family members said 57-year old Rudy Lindstrom was killed when a truck he was working on fell off a jack and hit him in the head. Lindstrom was a mechanic at the mine south of Roundup. The mine closed for 24-hours following the accident but has since resumed operations. Police and two federal inspectors continue to investigate. It is the second serious accident at the mine since December 23rd. The other involved a miner who suffered broken ribs. The government cited the mine for not reporting that accident in a timely manner. A government spokesperson says there is no connection between the two accidents.
