The assembly line at the Chrysler plant in Belvidere is up and running again after being shut down when an industrial accident at an area parts supplier halted deliveries.

The Rockford Register-Star reports that operations ceased for several hours at the plant between Tuesday afternoon and 6 a.m. Wednesday. A worker at the vehicle signaling device manufacturer Ventra was critically injured in an accident.

No further information was available about the man's condition but Belvidere Police Chief Jan Noble says that there may be an update later Wednesday.
