Man Killed in Truck Accident at Steel Plant in Warren, MI
Warren, MI -- January 5, 2023, a man was killed after an accident where he fell from a truck at a steel plant.
Details about the incident are still under the investigation at this time. They say it happened at Super Steel Treating Company, which is located off the corner of Rinke Road and 10 Mile Road.
Right now, the cause of the accident remains unclear. It appears a man somehow fell between a truck and a trailer, causing fatal injuries. It's unclear if the man owned or operated that truck, but the news says he was not an employee at the steel plant.
While there obviously needs to be a thorough investigation into how this awful event happened, the fact he apparently wasn't an employee where the incident occurred is actually a very important detail. It's one of the many important questions that experienced accident reconstructionists seek to answer in these situations.
Who did the victim work for? Who caused the accident itself? Was it the result of a co-worker's actions? Poor safety standards? Hazards on the property? A worker from a separate company? These answers can have drastically different implications for a family in need, and I can only hope steps are being taken besides simply waiting around for 6 months to a year while OSHA looks into things on their own time.
