Construction Site Accident at Texas A&M

Four construction workers were hurt after a barn frame collapsed on Saturday in College Station, Texas. The accident occurred at an $80 million-dollar Texas A&M University equestrian complex that is under construction about a mile from the main campus, CBS Atlanta reports.

Twisted metal beams from the 300-foot barn were seen at the site. The injured workers were taken to hospitals, three of whom were in critical condition. Their names and further details about their conditions have not been released.

The search and rescue efforts had to be put on hold while the remainder of the structure was stabilized. Once the structure was secured, the search of the area continued. No one else was injured.

Texas A&M officials do not know what caused the collapse, but University police identified Gamma Construction Company as the contractor. A representative from Gamma Construction has not responded to the Associated Press for comment.
