COLLEGE STATION (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - Four workers were injured — three critically — after a barn frame collapsed at an $80 million Texas A&M University equestrian complex that’s under construction. It happened on university property about a mile from the main campus at 11 a.m.
The College Station Fire Department says the accident involved an approximately 300-foot barn.
The injured workers were transported to hospitals. Their names and further details on their conditions were not immediately released.
Texas A&M police officials are trying to determine what caused the collapse. University police identified the contractor as Gamma Construction Company, with offices in Houston and San Antonio. A Gamma Construction representative didn’t immediately return a call for comment.
Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the collapse.
