OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Officials say one worker is dead and another is seriously injured after a crane doing bridge work collapsed in Wisconsin.
Department of Transportation spokesman Kris Schuller says the crane was working on the Butte Des Morts bridge in Winnebago County when it collapsed at about 9 a.m. Thursday.
Coroner Barry Busby says one worker died at the scene and the other has been taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
The collapse is the second fatal accident this year involving a crane working on the U.S. 41 expansion and redesign project.
A 58-year-old worker was killed in April while unloading a crane in a work area in Brown County. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's investigation into the cause of that accident is ongoing.
