Maryland construction accident kills 1, injures another

A 25-ton precast concrete wall fell on 2 workers at the construction site of Maryland Live! casino last week. One worker who was in his early 20s has died and another is in critical condition at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with life-threatening injuries.

Investigation is still underway for the construction accident, but so far no causes for the 30 by 40 foot structure collapse has been found. Inspectors from the Department of Inspections and Permits say the site is in compliance with state code. Construction is currently stopped while the accident is under investigation.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the young man who died in this tragic accident.
