An industrial accident at a Texas Instruments chip fabrication unit in the Dallas area has left a worker dead.

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

Perlich said firefighters Monday responded to a report of a water purifier explosion at a TI unit in Richardson.

Police said Aguilar 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 told The Associated Press that the incident remains under investigation.
