Dec 24, 2012 Full story: Towncow 29

When a worker at INTAT Precision, Inc., 2148 North SR 3, did not return home from work Saturday a family member became worried and contacted the Rushville Police and Rush County Sheriff's Department seeking information on the possibility of a traffic accident that may have delayed his arrival at his Fayette County residence.

Now the question is who will get the blame for the death?
The company by allowing unsafe equipment to continue in operation?
Or the dead employee by not following safety procedures?
What is certain is that the dead employee's family will sue INTAT big time for $millions (it's an opportunity to hit the jackpot for the dead employee's family plus the ambulance-chasing shyster of a lawyer that represents them).
But will INTAT be able to financially survive in Rushville if it pays out $millions and $millions in a settlement?
Oh well, if INTAT cannot survive in Rushville, it'll go down in history as just another one of Rushville's many failed businesses.

Work Comp laws do not allow for civil lawsuits. Whatever happens will be settled through the Indiana Work Comp Board. There are still plenty of other reasons INTAT may go down the drain though. Just not well run.

Eric was killed in the National ..not Muller. But both machines are enclosed in steel, like silos, but shorter. The national being longer, in which holds 2beater like mixers to stir the sand. U asked what it would do to a body, watch ur potatoes, while mashing them with an electric mixer. Its very sad..he was a good kid, and was learning the ropes!! My heart goes out to his wife an little boy.

Apparently no one heard his screams since no one even knew he was in there until the police went looking for him because he never came home after work. If they had heard his screams they would have called 911.

Yeah they may say practice safety but they don't want to wait for it to be done the right way. They want it done now and don't want to know how it got done. They just want to assume it got done the "right" way.

So does this mean in tat is hiring? Because I'm like most of rushville. On meth, having sex with 4 different guys, and have 3 kids. So I need some type of income besides child support and welfare. Well I don't really need it because I get enough and I usually get my meth for free because I suck cock for it. Would like to know ASAP, thanks.

STFU, dumbass. Eric set this accident in motion if he didn't follow safety procedures. I wouldn't lose a minute of sleep if it wasn't my fault regardless of the screams.

Suck on that, why don't ya?

STFU, dumbass. Regardless of real or perceived pressures by management to bypass safety an employee oews it to themselves and their loved ones to protect themselves. If Eric didn't follow safety procedures, then he did this to himself and his loved ones.

Suck on that, why don't ya?

you are just not.a nice person, and an insensitive a**hole! this thread ia so unneccessary but since you started it, ill reply to all the ignorant/ insensiyive poata.only, first of all, its called an accident for a reason, unfortunately he failed for one reason or another to lock out that machine before going inside it. im not saying its his fault or blame the guy that paid the ultimate price for one mistake, but that is what happened. no bosses are to blame, if someone.had been there hurrying him or yelling at him to get it done faster they would have known he was in there and it wouldnt have been a mystery for several hours. do you realize this peraon has a family? or do you just not care? also, as far as INTAT.going out of business, I highly doubt that, at least no time in the near.future. my brother in law works there and he work 12 hoursa a day 7 days a week everyweek for the last several months, so of they are producing that much, im pretty sure they are in good shape. I wish people would get informed or at least think before they try to post comments. ugh!

Such a waste of a young life!
