George Kontos and Katie Killion sue Range Resources for toxic chemical spill that caused serious chemical burns to worker.
A West Virginia truck driver is suing Range Resources over claims that company employees ordered him to keep working in wet clothes for hours after he was splashed with flowback water at a Buffalo Township well site.
Russell Evans of Triadelphia claimed he suffered chemical burns, blisters and rashes from the alleged incident May 21, 2013, at which time he was working for Equipment Transport LLC. The complaint was filed Wednesday in Allegheny County Court.
Evans was transporting “reused” water a distance of about five miles to a well site in Buffalo Township, according to the complaint. During his second trip to the well site that morning, he backed his truck up to a “sloppy pond” used to store reused frack water and noticed that water was leaking from the back hatch of his tanker truck.
