GAFFNEY, S.C. (AP) -- A North Carolina man has died in an accident at a South Carolina plant.
 
Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said the accident occurred shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday at the ADS plant in Gaffney.

Fowler says a man was on a lift about 30 feet off the ground removing shoes from shelves when his lift was hit by another lift.
 
Fowler says the victim was 24-year-old Kenneth Robert Clary of Kings Mountain.
 
Fowler says Clary suffered head injuries and died at the scene. The driver of the second lift was not hurt.
 
The coroner has ordered an autopsy.
 
The death is also being investigated by the state office of Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
