Blaine, WA — A worker who was doing some demolition at the Golden Nut Co. in Blaine last month died from his injuries after a very serious accident. The man who died was identified as James “Loyd” Bost, 52, and it appears that he was accidentally crushed by part of some machinery that fell apart as he was cutting it.
The accident happened around 1:00 p.m. at the Golden Nut Co. off Odell Road.
Bost and another worker, Paul Davis, were working on a demolition project when Bost tried to use a cutting tool to dismantle a large cyclone air separator. As he was working that afternoon, part of the machinery buckled and fell on top of him.
The authorities were called and they rushed to the scene, but Bost passed away nearly immediately. OSHA is investigating this accident further, as well as the Washington Department of Labor. Bost was working for a company called Call Paul, which was owned by Paul Davis.
