  • Work to restart on stadium after second worker dies
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — After police and fire investigators determined the second worker death at the new $1.2 billion San Francisco 49ers showcase stadium was an accident, officials said the project's accelerated construction plan would begin again on Tuesday.
    A delivery truck driver was crushed early Monday by a bundle of rebar being unloaded from his truck.
    An ambulance rushed the severely injured worker to a local hospital, where he died, according to a spokesman for Turner/Devcon, the construction company building Levi's Stadium.
    The spokesman, Jonathan Harvey, said state workplace safety officials said Monday that while their investigation is ongoing and could take months, "the jobsite has been deemed safe and is permitted to reopen."
