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 (BYOO'-deh-mohr) 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.
