Last week, a construction accident in Howell Township, Michigan killed a 61-year-old worker.
A 3,500-pound panel was being unloaded from a truck last Wednesday morning when it fell on the truck driver and crushed him. He had been hauling concrete slabs for a construction project and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The fatal accident occurred around 7:50am when the panel fell off a tractor trailer.
State and country officials, as well as authorities from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, are investigating the construction accident.
