Two women whose husbands were killed in a boiler explosion at a crude oil refinery in Wynnewood, Okla., have filed a lawsuit. The lawsuit filed in Fort Bend County, Texas, by LeeAnna Mann and Kari Smith seeks damages against CBR Energy and Wynnewood Refining Co. The suit was filed in the Texas county where the headquarters of CVR Energy, the parent company of Wynnewood Refining Co., is located.
The Sept. 28, 2012, explosion killed 45-year-old Russell Mann and 34-year-old Billy Smith. The lawsuit alleges the company was using an outdated boiler that had to be restarted manually instead of a system that would allow employees to restart the boiler from a remote location.
