In Framingham last week, a construction accident injured a 47-year-old man. The injured construction worker, who was not identified by name, was transported to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester via ambulance after his right arm was crushed.
Framingham’s Assistant Fire Chief said a piece of construction material fell from a flatbed truck, causing an “open crushing wound” to the worker’s right forearm. That truck was owned by Baron Industries, according to the assistant fire chief. He did not have information on the worker’s employer.
Representatives from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration were reportedly called to the scene of the construction accident to investigate.
