The Harlan Daily Enterprise reports

A rock fall that killed an employee at a Whitley County surface coal mine in March happened after the operator failed to identify and correct hazardous conditions, according to a federal report.

The mine operator did not prevent employees from working in a potentially dangerous spot between a machine and the rock wall above the area being mined, according to the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration accident report.

Joseph W. Partin, 33, was working on a machine when a 2-ton rock fell from the highwall above and crushed him.
