Incidents like that have happened in the past in So FL, my late wife was a Nurse Practitioner for an Occupational Medicine practice and saw many patients after horrific construction accidents. After a few stories from her, I drove to the construction site with my hard hat on, didn't want to risk stepping foot on one without it on. And on occasion we hear of flying rbar on the highway skewing an unsuspecting driver. Its a scary world out there folks, make that extra effort to be safe.

In the Coast Guard Auxiliary, we call it "Situational Awareness" Be aware of what's going on around you. I always watch those flatbed big rigs on the highway before I decide to pass it. Construction sites are an inherently dangerous place.
I was on a job site when a 5' section of metal channel came off the window washing rig from 24 stories and bounced 5' in the air when it hit - fortunastely no one was nearby.
