Streator man killed in oilfield accident

Posted: Updated:

A Streator man is dead after an accident on an oilfield in North Dakota. 

The Bismarck Tribune reports the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the death of Jared Rizzo, 23, on an oil site east of Willison, N.D. last week. 

The newspaper reports Rizzo was working for Wisco, Inc. when he was struck by a falling traveling block on a workover rig last Thursday. He later died of his injuries. 

Rizzo had lived in North Dakota for a few months, a friend told the paper. 

In a statement, Wisco said it is working with law enforcement and regulatory agencies on the investigation into the Streator man's death. A GoFundMe is raising money for his funeral costs.
