Last Friday in Titusville, Florida, a construction worker was killed when he was run over by a road-grader at around 4:40 pm. The construction project was intended to add two additional lanes to Grissom Parkway.
As of this writing, 48-year-old construction worker had been indentified so that police could notify his next of kin. He was an employee of KCF Site Construction, which was completing the work on Grissom Parkway.
No charges were filed against the driver of the road-grader; however, police said the driver is 47 years old and is employed by the same construction company. The accident is still under investigation.
With heavy-duty equipment and often treacherous conditions, construction sites are among the most dangerous places to work. Potential injuries include fires, welding accidents, motor vehicle accident, and on-site explosions.
