There was an accident at a construction project in DeSoto Parish, Louisiana on January 25, 2023.  According to reports, a logging truck collided with a dump truck on U.S. 171.  At the time, a work crew was filling in potholes on the roadway.  At least two workers were injured, and one was killed, as a result of the accident. The Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development has identified the victim as Chris Gray of Lake Charles.  The injured workers are Jalen Singleton and Mario Ross.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by this deadly incident.

Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  An 18-wheeler crashed into a construction convoy near Bryan, Texas on January 10, 2023.  There was a partial building collapse in Chicago, Illinois on January 12, 2023.  There was a deadly accident involving an excavator in Belmont, North Carolina on January 16, 2023.  A worker was killed by a passing vehicle in Indianapolis, Indiana on January 24, 2023.

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.
