11 injured in scaffolding collapse construction accident

Last week, 11 people were injured in a construction accident at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

According to reports, the accident occurred on Wednesday when a 50-foot by 50-foot area of scaffolding collapsed.  The scaffolding was being used in an expansion project along the border.

15 vehicles became trapped underneath the fallen scaffolding and northbound traffic from Mexico was stopped.  Emergency crews had to extricate 7 people from their vehicles.

4 of the 11 people who were injured in the accident were construction workers.  Only 1 of the 11, a construction worker, was listed as being in serious condition after the accident.

Officials with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating the construction accident.
