Update: Contractor killed in Lincoln fence collapse was Newcastle resident

A contractor who was killed this morning when a fence collapsed on him in Lincoln has been identified by the Placer County Coroner's Office as Kurt Allen Clark, 53, of Newcastle.

Clark and an employee were preparing to take down a heavy ceramic tile fence on E Street and replace the structure, which was about 50 feet long.

About 7:30 a.m., Clark was at one end of the fence and an employee in a small tractor was at the other end. Clark was marking where utility lines run underground when the tractor came in contact with the fence.

A city of Lincoln spokeswoman said the fence should have come down one section at a time. However, the entire structure fell at once, fatally injuring Clark.
