Steven E. Wade of Oak Creek was pronounced dead May 14 as a result of his injuries, according to a report released May 15 by the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner.

Wade was admitted May 10 to Froedtert Hospital, 9200 W. Wisconsin Ave., for “traumatic crushing injuries from a work-related accident,” the report stated. He suffered several rib fractures, a collapsed lung, asphyxia, spinal fractures, and developed seizures, according to the report.
