Construction Accident at Texas A&M Injures Four Workers

Posted By Thomas F. Martin, PLC || 28-Jun-2013

Sad news from Texas was reported June 22nd, as it was announced that four construction workers were involved in a workplace accident at College Station. Of the four workers injured, three were injured critically. No one else was hurt, and the current condition of these workers has not been released. It is known that searchers had to halt for some time, due to the concern of an additional collapse – this may or may not have furthered the already poor condition of the worker’s health.

The construction accident was caused by the collapse of the building the construction team was working on – an equine complex on the college grounds. The complex itself was only a mile from the central campus, with almost 30 workers present at the time of collapse. Upon arrival to the construction site in question, it was possible to see twisted metal bars that had obviously folded in on each other.

It it still unclear what caused the collapse, as the weather at the time was clear with only a moderate temperature. Both police and the construction company have failed to make statements about the accident. The final word from police was that the cause of the collapse was still being determined. As of June 24th, it was confirmed that OSHA has begun evaluating the construction site, and that no new work will begin on the equine complex until the investigation was complete.
