BERLIN, N.H. (AP) – A Randolph man has died in a construction accident.

Terry Corrigan, 47, was pinned in the cab of a crane that flipped over as it was being loaded onto a trailer Tuesday night.

Rescuers had to call in another crane to lift the fallen equipment before they could cut open the cab and reach Corrigan.

Two arrested in check scheme

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – Two men who were arrested outside a bank are suspected of forging tens of thousands of dollars in checks.

The arrests came Tuesday after a teller at St. Mary’s Bank suspected one of the men was trying to cash a forged check.

Police arrested Michael DeAngelis, 31, of Manchester and Scott Martel, 37, of Allenstown in the bank parking lot and said they found checks and other evidence of stolen checks.

Investigators say other charges may be filed as they check if the men were involved in other forgery cases involving tens of thousands of dollars.

Merrimack Cleanup

MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) – The Environmental Protection Agency is spending $4 million to continue cleaning up a hazardous waste site.

The New Hampshire Plating Company site has been passed up for federal money in recent years, though local officials have lobbied hard for money.

The money will be used to start the final cleanup, which will include excavating, treating and removing soil. Another $10 million will be needed to complete the work.

From 1962 until 1985, New Hampshire Plating discharged contaminated wastewater into four unlined lagoons on the property.
