MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A coal miner working underground in western Kentucky has died after being struck by a coal scoop.

It was the second coal mining death in Kentucky in less than a week and the fourth overall in the U.S. this year.

Kentucky’s Energy and Environment Cabinet says 58-year-old Phillip Ramsey was working at the Cardinal mine near Madisonville Tuesday evening when he was struck by the scoop. Ramsey was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

The mine is owned by Warrior Coal, a subsidiary of Alliance Resource Partners.
