CROWN POINT — OSHA officials have been contacted to investigate after a Crown Point man died in a work-related injury Monday morning, authorities said Tuesday. 

Kelly S. Davaney Jr., 23, was pronounced dead from blunt force trauma at 10:58 a.m. at the scene in the 11100 block of Broadway, according to a Lake County coroner's office release. 

Crown Point police and fire responded to Nick's Building Materials, 11100 Broadway, at 9:52 a.m., for a report of a serious injury to an employee, according to police.
