Louisville: A Ford Motor Co. worker has died after an accident at the Kentucky Truck Plant. The Jefferson County Coroner's office Sunday identified the victim as 54-year-old Ronald S. Cassady of Louisville. Deputy Coroner Jim Wesley said Cassady was pronounced dead Saturday morning at University Hospital of multiple blunt force injuries.

The Kentucky Truck Plant, which employs more than 4,000 workers, makes the Ford F250-F550, Super Duty, Lincoln Navigator, and the Expedition, according to the Ford Web site. Ford spokeswoman Marcey Evans said the plant was down for maintenance and construction at the time of the accident, which she said is under investigation by the company and the workers' union. Cassady was a 16-year veteran of the Kentucky Truck Plant.
