A Claude Howard Lumber Co. employee died after an apparent accident while working at the sawmill on Park Avenue, officials said. Salvador Hernandez, 32, of Statesboro, had crawled onto a piece of equipment to clear a jam on it when he was killed, Futch said. In a statement released Tuesday, Claude Howard Lumber said Hernandez, who has been an employee for nearly four years, was killed "when he became trapped under the bander machine which he normally operated."
