Chrysler factory fined after March accident

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has levied a $15,000 fine against Chrysler LLC s Toledo Machining Plant in Perrysburg Township because of a March incident in which a worker injured his hand.

While investigating the accident in which an employee s finger got caught in a machine, the agency found several serious violations of equipment and

procedures surrounding the machine, called an A-balancer.

The automaker s parts factory can appeal the citation.
