Scissor-lift leads to worker fatality

Equipment used in construction can be dangerous if used incorrectly. Last month, for example, a worker in an extended scissor lift was killed and two others suffered serious workplace injuries in a construction accident in Irving. A scissor lift is a platform that usually moves vertically by using linked and collapsible supports that are placed in a crisscross or scissor pattern. These are typically used on construction sites to reach very high areas.

Pedestrians and drivers have a responsibility to act safely

Crossing the street shouldn't be inherently dangerous. Unfortunately for many pedestrians, the reality is that drivers aren't looking for them. In today's society, the number of people who walk from place to place is relatively small compared to those willing to hop into their vehicle and drive where they want to go. As a result, it isn't surprising that drivers aren't always looking for pedestrians.
