Richard Broward, a 61-year-old man, was going about business as a truck driver unloading concrete slabs for Mack Transport, Inc. when his life came to an abrupt end. How? One of the 3500-pound concrete slabs fell off Richard’s truck and crushed him, according to the Detroit Free Press.
This is a terrible accident and my deepest condolences go out to Richard’s friends and family.
This industrial accident occurred at a construction site on M-59 in Livingston County, Michigan (MI) but accidents like this can happen anywhere, including North Carolina(NC). As an injury lawyer who’s represented people seriously hurt in accidents, I understand the dangers associated with certain work environments and the construction environment can pose dangers to workers.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration in Michigan is investigating the accident and I hope information can come to light that could help prevent an industrial accident like this from happening again.
