One man is dead following an industrial accident in Orange county.

The accident happened at the DuPont Sabine River Works facility in Orange just before 3 p.m. July 24.

Lonnie LeFleur, 55, of Sulphur, La., a contractor working for Turner Industries inside the ethylene unit, was killed in the accident.

Workers were attempting to move a bundle of pipes with a crane when the load shifted and fell.

A spokesman for DuPont says "we are deeply saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time."

Federal investigators are on the scene to look into the cause of the accident.
