Authorities said that a worker was in a construction zone between a truck and equipment that had a bucket lift. It appears the man was doing maintenance work on the bucket lift at the time. Somehow, the truck driver began backing up, reportedly assuming the worker would move as they did so. Instead, the truck pinned the worker's arm against the bucket lift, causing injuries described as incapacitating.

I'll say up front that I'm seeing only a small piece of the bigger picture here, as authorities rarely tell all of the facts to the public. But having been a part of many investigations into work accidents all around the state, I can't recall a job site that was handled properly where this sort of thing happened. It could be this was all just some reckless worker who wasn't taking safety into account, but my concern is this may have been the inevitable result of routine flaunting of the rules. Is that something authorities have looked into behind the scenes?
