A worker on Sound Transit’s Mountlake Terrace light rail segment is in critical condition after a concrete wall panel fell on him.

The panel struck the worker late in the morning on Oct. 27 near 212th Street SW and I-5. The man was tending to a retaining wall at ground level for the Mountlake Terrace light rail project. Sound Transit said it will be working closely with the contractor and authorities to investigate the accident and identify appropriate responses.

First responders pulled the worker from the wreckage, and officials said he had suffered traumatic injuries.

Sound Transit is working on extending its light rail line from Northgate in Seattle into south Snohomish County. Stations in Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace are scheduled to open in 2024.
