State from the Texas Department of Transportation:
"The worker is not a TxDOT employee. Any questions about the individual(s) involved would need to go to Williams Brothers Construction. Our thoughts and prayers are with the workers and their families as we all collectively hope for a positive outcome. As is standard for workzone events like this we are awaiting guidance from OSHA to determine project impacts as an investigation takes place."
