Friday afternoon, deputies from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to an accident at 45440 SE Jadrny Rd in Sandy, OR. This location is the site of a residential construction project.

There were several workers from Stalcup Roofing and Construction at the site installing trusses that were being delivered by Pro Build. The incident occurred while the construction workers were installing the trusses on the structure. 13 of the trusses toppled-over during this process and killed one of the construction workers. A second construction worker suffered serious injuries and had to be taken by Life Flight to Oregon Health Sciences University Hospital.

Two other construction workers were taken to area hospitals for minor injuries by American Medical Response.

This incident is currently being investigated by the Medical Examiner's Office. An investigator from the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) is also investigating. The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office will be assisting with this investigation.
