NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- A worker was killed in a tragic accident in New Albany Friday afternoon.

It happened around 2:30 on Kenzig Road, off State Street near I-265.

The sheriff's department says LG&E was working to pull new power lines on new towers when a rope holding a pulley snapped. The pulley fell about 100 feet and hit the worker in the head.

Officials say the worker from North Carolina was wearing a hard hat.

LG&E says work on its project is suspended until an investigation is complete.
