OSHA has cited an Oklahoma company after two cellphone towers collapsed in West Virginia and killed three people. The agency cited S and S Communication Specialists Inc. for two serious violations stemming from the February incident at Clarksburg. Officials say the company was modifying a cellular communication tower when the tower fell and weakened a second tower, which also collapsed. Two company employees and a volunteer firefighter died. Two other people suffered serious injuries. OSHA assessed a $7,000 penalty for each violation. The company will have 15 business days to respond.
