Worker Injured While Setting up for Chickenstock Live!

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a worker's thumb was partially amputated while setting up production equipment for the Chickenstock Live! concert scheduled to be held Saturday in Salisbury.

The incident occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday at the Arthur W. Perdue Stadium on Hobbs Road. When troopers arrived on the scene, they met with Salisbury Fire Department EMS personnel who were treating 50-year-old Keith Dougherty of Rehoboth Beach for what police described as a "partial amputation" of his thumb. 

Dougherty was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury for treatment of his injury. 

According to police, Dougherty was employed by Light Action Productions from New Castle Del., and was working on the Chickenstock Live! set when the incident occurred.

Officials from Maryland Occupational Safety and Health responded to the scene to conduct their own investigation. 

"At this time the incident appears to be truly accidental and no foul play is expected," police said in a statement.

Arthur W. Perdue Stadium will host Saturday's Chickenstock Live! concert featuring Kenny Loggins, Dionne Warwick, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, America and the Marshall Tucker Band.
