MOUNT PLEASANT, Texas (AP) - A night shift supervisor at a
northeast Texas poultry plant is dead after he became pinned under
the wheels of a truck backing into a loading dock.

Federal workplace safety inspectors are investigating the death
of Jimmy Bynum of injuries from the accident at the Pilgrim's Pride
protein conversion plant in Mount Pleasant.

Pilgrim's Pride spokesman Gary Rhodes says Bynum was injured
about 1 a.m. Wednesday and died later at East Texas Medical Center
in Tyler. Rhodes says Bynum had worked for Pilgrim's Pride for 25
years.
