One Killed in Crane Collapse Accident at School in Celina, TX

Celina, TX -- March 3, 2023, one person was killed due to an accident where a crane collapsed at a school under construction.

Initial details about the incident said that it happened at around 2:00 p.m. at Dan Christie Elementary, which is under construction, located off Crutchfield Road and Boleyn Avenue. Information is limited right now. It appears work was being done by Progue Construction when a crane truck somehow overturned onto the building. As a result, one person sustained fatal injuries, but it's unclear who that person was. The incident is still under investigation.

I have no doubts OSHA will be looking into this, even if the victim was some sort of bystander or visitor to the property rather than a worker. But readers may have seen me be critical of OSHA in the past. It isn't necessarily due to their ability to investigate something like this. Rather, it's the fact their priorities are not to get the victims and families the help they need.

OSHA usually comes to a site, takes months and months to investigate, then issues some fines. Those fines usually amount to little more than a slap on the wrist, and their aim is generally to enforce government safety standards. But another way, OSHA efforts may help families who have lost a loved one, but that doesn't mean their goal is to help them. It's just a side-effect of their own priorities. It wouldn't surprise to see them live up to that reputation here, as well.
