One injured in building collapse

Posted: Updated:

One man was sent to the hospital after framing at a construction site collapsed, pinning him underneath.

A construction crew was working on roof trusses at the Heatherwilde Professional and Medical Center in Pflugerville when authorities say one came loose, creating a domino effect.

The worker was able to get himself out from underneath the pile of wood and was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

No one else was injured.

OSHA is investigating the incident.
