0 0

The ministry of labour has been called in to investigate a fatal accident at a plastics manufacturer in Vaughan.

It happened Saturday morning, around 5 a.m. at CRS Plastics Limited on Hanlan Rd, near Pine Valley Dr and Steeles Ave.

"The call was made by staff within the premise," acting Sgt. Hanna with York Regional Police told Newstalk 1010.

"The female party, believed to be in her 30s sustained serious injuries," he said outside the factory. "Sadly, she succumbed to those injuries."

There were reports that the woman was pinned by a piece of machinery. Hanna could not confirm that, saying the investigation is still in the very early stages.

"Given the fact that we have not notified the next of kin, we won't be releasing any further information at this time," 

CRS Plastics makes plastic bottles - the kind that hold your laundry detergent, bleach or Costco-sized ketchup.   It's not clear how long the woman's been with them but the factory's website says its plant staff are experienced.

"The current team consists of key personnel that have all personally exceeded 25 years in the plastics packaging industry and a plant staff that have been working for CRS Plastics on an average of 10 years."
