A New Orleans man was crushed to death when a crane boom collapsed at a Loreauville-area bridge project, authorities said.
The construction worker was working on a bridge over the Loreauville canal on Highway 86. The state highway department is replacing the two-lane span, known locally as the Teche Lake Bridge.
The 56-year-old worker’s name was being withheld until his family could be notified.
