San Onofre

A 41-year-old Vista man died Wednesday in a Mission Viejo hospital of head injuries he suffered Monday while working at the San Onofre nuclear power plant, a spokesman for the plant said.

Meredith B. Seace, an electrician, suffered the injuries while using a wire-brush burnishing machine to clean metal brackets in a workshop, said David Barron, a spokesman for Southern California Edison. Apparently a bracket broke loose and struck the man in the temple.

Seace was taken to San Clemente General Hospital and later transferred to Mission Community Hospital, where he died.
