A pipeline construction accident left a construction worker seriously injured after the worker’s clothing became tangled in a road boring machine, causing him to be pulled into the machine or into the hole.
Jeremy Morris, 30, was transported from the scene of the construction accident to LSU hospital. The Laney Directional Drilling Co. worker suffered extensive internal and external injuries and was listed in critical condition.
This marked the second accident in the area in as many weeks. The earlier accident resulted in the death of a worker whose clothing was caught in a piece of machinery on a drilling rig. That worker died at the scene of the drilling rig accident.
