An oil field worker was killed in an on-the-job accident near Kay Road and County Road 490 last week, when he, apparently, endured injuries caused by a water pump. Co-workers and emergency crew members found him in a large water pit nearby, where official believe he had drowned.

Authorities identified the oil field worker as 25-year-old Gaylon Reese Taylor, of Grandbury, Texas. Reports noted that the man may have been working for Caprock Energy Services, LLC.

Officials believe Taylor may not have been wearing protective gear when the water pressure caused the metal end of hose to strike him in the head and knock him unconscious.
