HURST (1080 KRLD) - Heavy winds may have played a role in a deadly construction site accident in Hurst.

61-year-old George Clark of Frisco was working on a new hotel on Campus Drive in Hurst shortly after 7:00 a.m. when he fell 25 feet off a ladder.

He was pronounced dead a few minutes later.

“Our officers said that it’s possible that wind did play a part in the accident,” says Assistant Hurst Police Chief Billy Keadle. “(Clark) and another worker talked about using the ladder in the windy conditions just prior to the accident.”

OSHA is investigating.
