1,000 Pounds of Rebar Come Crashing Down in Texas

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 1-Feb-2018

On Thursday afternoon in San Antonio, TX, a construction jobsite turned deadly after 1,000 pounds of rebar support beams approximately 20 yards in length came crashing down. The worksite was for the Texas Department of Transportation and was located near Loop 410 and U.S. 90.

According to police reports, the workers onsite had been tying the rebar together. The structure would have been placed atop a pillar that would have been used to support a new access road.

During the process, one of the support beams tipped, which caused the entire thing to fall.

In the aftermath, three construction workers were injured. One of them was trapped under the rebar. He sustained multiple broken bones and head trauma; he is currently in critical condition.

San Antonio Police Sgt. Mark Hubbard stated that both OSHA and the police department will be investigating the construction site. Currently, the incident is being treated like an accident.
