Taunton, MA — An apparent industrial accident at Tribe Mediterranean Foods Plant Friday morning, December 16, 2011, killed a Fall River Man when his arm became caught in a grinding machine. The fatal workplace accident occurred around 1 a.m. in Myles Standish Industrial Park in Taunton, reports The Herald News.
