Feds Charge Williamsport Company After Deadly Trench Collapse

GREENWOOD TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Federal investigators have charged a company from Williamsport in a deadly trench collapse in Columbia County.

Richard Gold of Unityville was killed in 2015 when he was crushed by dirt at a worksite outside of Millville.

The U.S. attorney's office says Susquehanna Supply Company violated OSHA guidelines that require trenches to have an adequate protective system, such as sloped walls.
