Michael McMillan, 43, from Graham, was killed Wednesday at a Key Energy drill site in Wise County when drill pipe he was counting fell off the truck and rolled on him. The Wise County Messenger has an article and picture.
The Wise County Messenger also has an article about Clay Lisby, the 26 year old man who was killed when the dirt at a Fort Worth drill site gave way and his truck turned over. There is a picture of Lisby, his wife and the 3 year old boy they had just adopted. Lisby was a Boyd firefighter.
Isn’t it interesting that no one is saying who the operator of this pad site is?
Investigator Lisa Surrel with the Fort Worth Police Department.“The dirt on the pad gave way and caused the vehicle to roll over. The ground was really soft.
They were initially unable to get him out of the vehicle.” Surrel said the death is being ruled accidental. It is unknown why the pad site gave way. It appears to be a freak accident, and Lisby was not at fault, said Surrel.
Who constructed that pad site and why did they build a dangerous pad site where the dirt is that soft? …shifting sand?
Last Wednesday I posted about this accident and the Halliburton frack truck that was driving around without a valve and spilling acid.

That was no "freak accident", that was the direct result of taking shortcuts to save time and money.

If this accident was due to cutting corners, then that's horrible. Because of this a wife and little boy are missing their husband and father.
