FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (AP) — A 45-year-old Oklahoma man was killed and three other people were injured while doing railroad maintenance on Fort Leonard Wood.

The fort said in a news release Thursday that Louis Stallings, of Atoka, Okla., died in the accident Wednesday while working on a railroad spur at the fort. Stallings was a railroad maintenance vehicle operator for McAlester Army Ammunition Plant in McAlester, Okla.

The fort says all those involved in the incident were civilians working for the Army. The Army and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating.

Two of the injured were in stable condition at a Springfield hospital. The third person suffered minor injuries and was taken for observation to a hospital in Rolla.
