Colorado DOT still investigating cause of construction accident

As we mentioned in an earlier post, an increase in the number of construction jobs in Colorado could mean an increase in construction site-related injuries. Before the weather cools, road construction continues across the state. But road construction can be dangerous for both drivers and workers.

Recently, a construction worker was nearly crushed by a falling panel; he had been in a lift vehicle when the accident occurred. Fortunately, the worker only sustained a broken ankle and a cut on his face. The injuries could have been much worse given that the panels were at least 12 feet high and made of concrete.

Colorado DOT spokesman commented that they are unsure as to why the panels fell. But an investigation will hopefully reveal the cause in order to prevent this type of accident from occurring again.
