HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

A worker died in an industrial accident at Intel in Hillsboro.

Emergency crews responded to the Ronler Acres Campus at 2:35 p.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said 50-year-old Jay Elwell died while performing routine maintenance on a vertical industrial storage carousel.

Elwell worked for Raymond Handling Concepts Corp., a sub-contracting agency.

The initial Hillsboro Police Department investigation showed this was an accident and not criminal in nature. The case was turned over to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Intel released a statement Thursday saying, “We are deeply saddened by the accident and are cooperating with local authorities to investigate this matter thoroughly."
