SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Construction is slated to restart Tuesday at the new $1.2 billion San Francisco 49ers showcase stadium, after police and fire investigators determined a worker's death was an accident and not a crime.
Officials at the scene say a delivery truck driver was crushed early Monday by a bundle of rebar being unloaded from his truck.
The construction company building the stadium, Turner/Devcon, says an ambulance rushed the severely injured worker to a local hospital, where he died.
A workplace safety investigation is underway.
It's the second death at the site since construction began.
In June, an elevator mechanic was killed at the stadium when he was struck by a counterweight while working in a shaft.
