With work accidents like this, I'm always worried that something important is going to slip through the cracks. Generally speaking, even if OSHA is quick to investigate an accident, they have their own priorities. They're looking for violations of state safety regulations so they can issue fines. Those goals don't always align with investigations that would prioritize getting victims and families the answers they need. Hopefully authorities here are taking this incident more seriously.
