Construction companies fined for fatal Oak Island Bridge accident

Posted by Debra Worley - email

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The State Labor Department has fined two construction companies more than $9,000 for a deadly bridge accident in Oak Island last year.

Last December a beam collapsed at the work site of the new Oak Island Bridge and killed worker Jose Montalvo.

The Wilmington Star News reports that Lee Construction Company was fined more than $6,300 for four serious violations, and Barnhill Contracting was fined $2,800 for one serious violation.

Work resumed on the construction site last month.
