— The state Department of Labor is investigating a Friday death at a Youngsville glass plant, authorities said Monday.

An electrician with Act Electric in Wake Forest was working on a lift inside Arch Aluminum & Glass when a crane moving a pane of glass collided with the lift, DOL spokesman Neal O'Briant said. The electrician, whose name hasn't been released, fell to the plant floor about 25 feet below and died.
