PARKE COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Two people were sent to the hospital following a building collapse in Parke County Monday afternoon.
It happened on State Road 59, a bit south of Bellmore.
According to Bellmore Fire Chief Jason Games, there was new construction taking place at the property when, for an unknown reason, the trusses being installed failed causing three workers to fall.
The incident happened early Monday afternoon.
One of those individuals was flown by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital, another was taken by ambulance to a Terre Haute hospital and the third reportedly refused treatment.
Chief Games didn’t speculate on the severity of the injuries sustained.
