Another worker involved in the Oak Island Bridge collapse has filed a lawsuit. John Keel filed the suit last week in Craven County against the contractor and two engineering firms working on the project when a girder collapsed in December 2008. The accident killed one worker and injured another.
Keel also filed a complaint against the state DOT. Attorney Richard Flexner says Keel, who was the foreman on the project, has not been able to work because he is suffering from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
