There was a deadly accident at a construction site in Floyd County, Georgia on June 14, 2022.  According to reports, a crew was performing work on a private driveway when a dump truck crashed into a Bobcat on the worksite.  The truck was being loaded with asphalt when its brakes apparently failed.  It began moving before striking the Bobcat.  Both vehicles continued before falling roughly 50 feet down an embankment.  Two workers who were on the Bobcat were killed: John Hunter Lane and Cody Hauser.  Two other workers were injured, and one required an emergency airlift to a local hospital for treatment.  The construction work was being performed by KGI from Armuchee.  The accident remains under investigation.

Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  There was a deadly accident at an Amazon construction site in Stafford, Virginia on May 4, 2022.  Two workers were killed in a trench collapse in Charlotte County, Florida on May 9, 2022.  There was a deadly accident at a construction site in Montgomery Township, Minnesota on May 10, 2022.  There was a deadly accident at a construction site in Houston, Texas on May 18, 2022.  There was a deadly accident at a construction site in Mahaska County, Iowa on June 1, 2022.

Despite being a vital part of the economy, construction projects often pose severe hazards both to construction workers and to the general public if precautions are not taken.  Each construction project poses its own unique risks and hazards based on the work being done.  Risks that may present themselves during a project must be carefully evaluated before the job begins.
