DA to Investigate Construction Accident that Injured Four
According to the DA's statement, which he released this afternoon:
"We take worker safety extremely seriously. In this particular case, we are in the process of conducting an independent investigation to determine if any criminal conduct has occurred. Once that investigation is concluded, we can reasonably assess if any possible criminal conduct has transpired."The construction crew, employed by Nibbi Brothers General Contractors, was working on a six-story building on Third Street near 19th Street when the roof where they had been pouring concrete collapsed. Three of the workers are in critical condition, while one suffered minor injuries and was released this afternoon.
They had been working on the Potrero Launch Apartments, a 196-unit complex that was slated to open next year.
