A man in a pickup truck killed a worker and injured another worker while they were cleaning up the mudslide on Highway 17. The authorities told NBC Bay Area News that, “They were hit in the construction area and were employees of Watsonville-based Granite Construction.” The man that was hurt was stuck under the vehicle and had to be extricated. The California Highway Patrol was unable to confirm whether the slick roads led to the fatal collision. The weather played a big role in this accident. Names have yet to be released as the authorities are still investigating this tragic accident.
The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the worker who died. The team wishes a speedy recovery on the injured co-worker.
