A construction accident in Greenwood claimed three lives on Thursday. Emergency crews were called to the scene at the Dayton freight site just after 4 p.m.
A section of wall being built as part of a new construction on the property may have fallen on the workers. Preliminary reports indicate high winds and rain at the time of the accident may be a factor, but authorities say it’s too soon to know for sure as they investigate the the cause of the accident further.
The two surviving workers were transported to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. The names of the five people involved in the accident have not been released pending family notification. The site is located off of I-65 in Greenwood.
The Indiana Occupational Health and Safety Administration along with other officials are investigating the accident.
