A 30-year-old man was injured when a pallet of ham fell on his head late Wednesday afternoon at a meat-processing plant in Montgomery County, authorities said.

The accident was reported at 5:44 p.m. at Hatfield Quality Meats at 2700 Clemens Rd. in Hatfield Township. The man was flown to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. His condition was not immediately available.

One report described the contents of the pallet as three dozen hams weighing 20 pounds each. Company officials could not be reached for comment. - Robert Moran
