First today two men were taken to Rapides Regional following a construction site accident south of Woodworth this morning.
RPSO says the men were part of a crew working on the widening of Highway 165 at Fish Hatchery Road. The men were apparently working in a hole when it collapsed. A Diamond B Construction spokesperson says the men were subcontractors.
This accident comes one week after another construction accident. That accident on Highway 28 east took the life of 20 year old Mack Doyle of Pineville.
In that accident Pineville Police say the worker was in some type of ditch when it apparently collapsed. Doyle was taken to Rapides Regional and later died.
