Thursday morning, a man died trying to get a vehicle loose at a construction site in Northern Fort Worth. 

About the Fatal Construction Accident

According to Fox 4 News, a man, who is yet unnamed, was killed Thursday morning around 8 am near Highway 287.

According to preliminary reports, a vehicle had become stuck in the mud at a work site, and construction workers attempted to remove it.

The victim was underneath the vehicle to anchor it to another vehicle and pull it out. When the vehicle unexpectedly gained traction, it drove over the victim and killed him.

Police were called to the scene, but they are treating the case as an accident.

Construction Accident Statistics

  • According to the Occupational Hazard and Safety Administration, over 20% of all private worker fatalities occurred in the construction field.
  • OSHA considers the four most deadly accidents the “fatal four,” which includes falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between.
  • The “fatal four” are responsible for over half of all construction worker deaths. 
  • Eliminating the “fatal four” would save over 518 lives every year.
