Man electrocuted in industrial accident near Easton

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Fresno County Coroner's office has identified a Hanford man who died after driving his truck into power lines.

The death of 51-year-old Luis Manuel Santos has been ruled an accident. Investigators say he suffered head and neck injuries associated with electrocution.

It happened on Wednesday near Brawley and Lincoln in Fresno County. Santos worked as a truck driver for Penny-Newman Grain of Fresno. Investigators say he was unloading grain out of a steel tanker trailer and left the door to a grain elevator open -- which left some power lines exposed.
