Marco Garcia Killed in Work Accident in Sugar Land, TX
Sugar Land, TX — October 18, 2023, Marco Garcia sustained fatal injuries due to a work accident at around 10:24 a.m. off Belknap Road.
A report publicly released by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration shows the incident happened at 10111 Belknap Road, which appears to be the address for Yax Auto Repair. The company identified in the investigation report, however, was Ramvall Construction.
From initial reports, it appears that 60-year-old Marcus Garcia was said to be assisting with a truck that was backing up. The driver of the truck then apparently lifted the dump bed to dump out material. That's when, according to OSHA, the trailer "began to tilt left." Somehow, the trailer landed on Garcia, resulting in fatal injuries.
No others were said to be injured due to the incident. OSHA officials listed one apparently "serious" alleged violation stemming from their investigations. There is also a recommended penalty of $6.250 listed in the report. No further information about the accident is available at this time.
