RICHARDSON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – An industrial accident at a Texas Instruments chip fabrication unit in Richardson has left a worker dead.

Richardson police Sgt. Kevin Perlich on Tuesday identified the victim as 54-year-old Roy Aguilar of Dallas.

Perlich says firefighters Monday responded to a report of a water purifier explosion at a TI unit in Richardson. Police say the victim was impaled by some type of glass.

A spokeswoman with Dallas-based TI said Tuesday that the company had limited information on the accident at its chip-making facility. Whitney Jodry said, “The safety and well-being of our employees and contractors is a top priority for Texas Instruments and this is a great loss for our company.”

The incident remains under investigation.
