Accidents can happen anytime and anywhere without warning. In case you pass by a construction site, for example, the odds of an unforeseen incident increases exponentially.

One such tragedy occurred with a construction site worker named Jorge Castaneda, 46, from Queens. Unfortunately, he succumbed to the wounds he received.

This fatal accident happened because a forklift loaded with scaffolding of pipes tipped over. According to witnesses, it happened about 3:00pm at a construction site on Stewart Street and Broadway in Bushwick.  The forklift tipped over the flatbed truck and Jorge was crushed between the truck and forklift. He was walking between the vehicle and the equipment, says a local police report.
