Posted: Updated:

One man has been killed and another one injured in an accident at a Norfolk steel plant.

The accident happened at the Nucor Steel plant around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

The man killed in the accident has been identified as Perry Hoemann, 58, of Hoskins.

Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger has also identified the other man injured in the accident as 49-year-old Harold "Junior" Claussen, of Norfolk.

Jeff Haase is a manager for Tube City IMS, a company that services steel mills. Haase, says Hoemann was working with two Tube City employees, including Claussen, when the accident occurred.

They were dismantling a piece of equipment when a counterweight broke loose and struck the payloader machine they were standing in.

Hoemann was pronounced dead at the scene. Claussen was taken to the Norfolk hospital and is expected to leave the hospital on Thursday.
