A construction worker critically injured at a job site last week has died, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner.
The victim was identified as Nicholas Peralta, 28, of Lewisville, who died at 12:21 a.m. Wednesday at John Peter Smith Hospital. He died from blunt force trauma to his head from a falling object and his death was ruled an accident.
Peralta was injured Friday when an object fell from a crane and hit him, authorities said.
OSHA officials are investigating the incident, said Juan Rodriguez, an OSHA spokesman in the Dallas office, in a Thursday email.
