A construction worker lost his life this morning after an accident involving a crane became fatal. The reports surrounding the accident reveal that the crane could have potentially landed on the worker as he was at a construction site on U.S. 41.
The construction accident caused the southbound lanes of the highway to be shut down while emergency personnel and rescue workers assessed the damage of the accident. The actual accident took place just south of Scheuring Road.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration are investigating the accident. Safety procedures will also be reviewed during the investigation.
