Cave-In Probe Closed

The federal investigation into a Moscow construction cave-in that killed two has been closed because employee safety officials said they have no jurisdiction.

Investigators for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigated the May 3 accident but announced this week the inquiry was closed. No regulations were broken because the victims were independent contractors and were not involved in work in the hole, said Roger Laws, safety compliance officer.
