Police said a worker has been killed and another has been injured in an industrial accident at the Cargill plant in Memphis.

Memphis police spokesman Louis Brownlee said a wall collapsed during demolition at the plant at around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday. Brownlee said the injured worker was taken to a hospital in non-critical condition. The names of the workers had not been released.

Brownlee said there have been no gas or chemical leaks that would present a danger to the community.

The company did not immediately return calls or an email seeking comment.
