Due to the various potential ways of getting injured, oil and gas drilling is not a job for the faint of heart. Statistics indicate that over 100 people are killed per year in the United States in oil and gas drilling-related accidents, including explosions. However, workplace explosions are not just limited to the oil industry. If such an accident occurs, and you or a loved one suffers a personal injury, it would be wise to contact an expert explosion accident attorney at 617-787-3700.
Although the cause is uncertain, what is known at this time is that an explosion at a drilling cite in eastern Oklahoma has resulted in five missing people. Because the fire was constantly fueled by gas from a nearby well, it was nearly impossible for authorities to conduct a proper search until the fire was extinguished. Even then, however, five people still remain missing, although the rest of the workers on the cite were not injured. The blast occurred on Monday, June 18, near Quinton, Oklahoma.
