The top 4 causes of accidents on construction sites

If you work in the construction industry, you will know that many hazards come with the job. Although there will always be potential dangers associated with the construction industry, it is the responsibility of employers to ensure that comprehensive safety procedures are in place and that the risk of injuries is kept to a minimum.

1 dead, 1 injured in recent crash

A Lake Charles man recently lost his life when his vehicle was struck by another car. This crash occurred the morning of Dec. 6 north of Creole.
