According to Glenna Herald with the Baytown Ultimate website, a woman is suing after her husband died on the job.
Margaret Wylie, on behalf of Ronald Wylies estate, filed suit in Harris County District Court on Nov. 2, stating that Targa Resources failed to provide a safe working environment resulting in the death of Ronald Wylie.
In the suit, Wylie alleges Targa’s negligence caused the wrongful death of her husband. According to the brief, while Ronald Wylie was working at Targa Midstream of Texas, on Texas State Highway 146, a piston shaft exploded, fatally striking him.
It was the responsibility of Targa, Wylie says, to maintain a safe work environment for its employees.
Wylie is being represented by Houston attorney Robert Ammons. She is seeking damages in accordance with the evidence, attorney’s fees, and court costs.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2010-72529.
