Five Workers Injured Following Partial Collapse of Silo at Oak Grove Power Plant Near Franklin, Texas

Franklin, TX – Five workers were injured at the Oak Grove Power Plant following a partial collapse of a silo. The incident happened Monday afternoon. Emergency personnel transported the workers to the hospital.

A spokesperson for Luminant, the company that manages the plant, confirmed that a silo owned and operated by a third party was damaged. Luminant is collaborating with a third-party provider to investigate the cause of the incident.

The Oak Grove Power Plant near Franklin garnered attention following a deadly boiler explosion in May last year. In February of the same year, four workers at the plant were hospitalized following the release of a chemical. Luminant owns and manages the plant.

Thoughts on The Oak Grove Power Plant Injuries

Those injured here deserve justice for the injuries and financial consequences they will suffer because of this incident. From experience, the companies involved will seek to blame the workers for not following procedures or failing to take adequate measures to prevent this incident from occurring.

This is not fair, and all involved will likely need to have the incident investigated by trained professionals to ensure their rights are adequately protected. If wrongdoing on the part of a manufacturer, company, or some third party is determined, those injured should receive fair compensation for their suffering.
