POWELL, Wyo. -

Authorities say a 28-year-old woman was killed in an accident at a sugar beet processing plant in Lovell.
    
Big Horn County Sheriff Kenneth Blackburn tells The Billings (Mont.) Gazette that Saturday night's accident at the Western Sugar Cooperative facility happened in a piece of equipment "quite a ways from the main factory" in a lift station that feeds water to where beets are dropped off by trucks.
    
The woman's name has not been released.
    
A Western Sugar spokesman tells the Powell Tribune the cooperative is investigating and is committed to cooperating with authorities. Blackburn says foul play is not suspected
    
The Gazette reports the cooperative, formed in 2002, includes 1,400 grower-owners who raise sugar beets in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska.
