OXNARD, CA (April 12, 2019)– A construction worker perished Thursday after a crane failed and collapsed in the 3000 block of Camino Del Sol near Kinetic Drive.
According to reports, the Oxnard fire department responded to a call around 1:40 p.m. In the report, firefighters learned that a 54-year-old carpenter from Palmdale was struck by a fallen crane.
Fire department crews arrived and pronounced the victim dead at the scene.
Fire Department spokesman Sergio Martinez stated that the crane, responsible for lifting a part of a concrete wall, failed and collapsed. A part of the crane struck the worker and injured a second construction worker from Palmdale. The surviving worker sought hospitalization after the incident.
According to Martinez, nearly fifteen crew members from Gluck Building Co. were undertaking a 60,000-square-foot building project at the time. He further adds that no foul play occurred.
