There's horrible news being reported out of Santa Clara today.
According to CBS San Francisco, a construction worker was killed at the site of the 49ers' new Levi's Stadium.
Santa Clara city spokesman Dan Beerman detailed the incident, saying the victim was working in an elevator shaft when another worker “took a car down the shaft” and accidentally crushed him. The accident occurred at 6:45 a.m. local time.
The victim was an employee for the $1.3 billion stadium project’s general contractor, Turner-Devcon.
“It’s a shame because we’ve had 1,000 people a day working on that site for well over a year now and we’ve had very minimal accidents, and to have this is just devastating for everybody,” Beerman said.
“Everybody’s walking around here in a daze,” he said.

The Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh feud started a while ago back in the college football scene when Carroll was the coach at USC and Harbaugh at Stanford.
To say the least the two have a distaste for each other would be an understatement.
Now that both men are the head coaches in the NFC West, their rivalry has blossomed to a new level.
Carroll is the Seattle Seahawks coach...

During the 2012 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers drafted Illinois wide receiver A.J. Jenkins with the 30th overall pick. Jenkins’ rookie season was uneventful to say the least as he only played in 37 snaps and was targeted once, which he dropped. However...
Former San Francisco 49ers great Roger Craig believes his former team will become the next great NFL dynasty under head coach Jim Harbaugh.
“I’m going on the record saying the 49ers win two Super Bowls in the next eight years,” Craig said last week. “They’ll be the winningest team in the next decade.”
Craig compares Harbaugh to Bill Walsh.
“He’s my kind of coach,”...
The San Francisco 49ers have signed rookie outside linebacker Corey Lemonier to a four-year contract.
The deal was announced Monday, a day before the reigning NFC champions open a three-day minicamp.
San Francisco made a trade with the Packers to move up five spots and choose the Auburn standout with the 88th overall selection in April's draft.
Also Monday, San Francisco signed...
San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and head coach Jim Harbaugh are very happy with what they’ve seen from second-year receiver A.J. Jenkins.
“A.J. I thought, the last two days of last week (OTA) had the best two days he’s had since I’ve been here. Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette – they’re all stepping up. And it’s just going to be a continuing...
Former San Francisco 49ers great Roger Craig gave a ringing endorsement of current coach Jim Harbaugh.
“He makes you accountable. He’s very similar to Bill Walsh that way,” Craig said, via Ashley Fox of ESPN.
That’s a big time compliment from a player who actually was on those great 49ers teams.
Craig gushed over how Harbaugh has many of the same traits as Walsh.
Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com asked 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh today if wide receiver Mario Manningham will be ready for the regular season after tearing his ACL late last season.
Harbaugh responded by saying, “At some point.”
It certainly doesn’t sound like the 49ers are expecting Manningham to be ready. Don’t be surprised if he lands on the PUP list heading into the...
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was extremely critical of the Seattle Seahawks' repeated, positive PED tests.
Jim Harbaugh has used the recent run of suspensions on the division rival Seattle Seahawks for performance-enhancing drug infractions as a reminder to his own San Francisco team: Cheating won't be tolerated.
Harbaugh's reigning NFC champion 49ers had begun their three-day minicamp Tuesday when the coach was asked about the issue surrounding the Seahawks.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have signed rookie outside linebacker Corey Lemonier to a four-year contract.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll have had an ongoing dislike for each other since Harbaugh was at Stanford, and Carroll was at USC.
That dislike has ratcheted up a ton since both teams are rivals in the same division, and both teams engaged in an arms race this off-season via the draft and free agency.
Both teams will...
The St. Louis Rams were a thorn in the 49ers' side in 2012, pushing San Francisco to a tie in Week 10 and defeating them in over time three weeks later. And since joining the 49ers as a free agent this offseason, former Rams' safety Craig Dahl said the offense was tipping its plays.
The 49ers announced they have inked wideout Brandon Carswell to a two-year deal Wednesday. To make room on the roster, the team waived tight end Cameron Morrah.
