JACKSON, MI (WNEM) -

A local man who was critically injured in a natural gas explosion has died.

Greg Peacock, 32, of Clare County, was at West Bay Oil's site near Jackson to pick up some equipment on June 12 when he struck a high pressure gas line.

He got out of his truck to turn it off when the explosion happened.

More than 70 percent of Peacock's body was covered in third-degree burns.

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration's on-site investigation was completed Monday, saying the incident appeared to be caused by human error.
