Business owner's teenage son dies in workplace accident

LUCEDALE — George County sheriff’s deputies say a 15-year-old died in a workplace accident in Lucedale.

The Sun Herald reports Thomas Patrick Harlan Jr. died after he was struck on the head by a pole at Tri-State Pole and Piling. The business is a family owned company that manufactures poles used by power companies. It has been in operation for more than 36 years.

Authorities say the teen was the son of Thomas Harlan Sr., one of the owners.

Shonna Pierce, public information officer for the sheriff’s office, says a worker was operating a loader to stack poles when one of them bounced off and struck the teen on the head.
