CORRIGAN, Texas (KLTV) - Corrigan OSB L.L.C., owned by Roy O. Martin, announced the death of a construction worker at its Corrigan expansion project site.

The company stated in a press release that the construction employee was performing contracted work at the site in Polk County on Wednesday. The person’s name was not released.

“It is with our deepest sympathy and prayers that we ... share news of the tragic loss of a construction employee performing contracted work at the Corrigan O.S.B. LLC construction site in Polk County... We will take this time to remember the family and friends of the deceased, the construction contractor, and all those who have and continue to contribute to the project,” the company said.
