Roof collapse injures 2 workers

A roof collapse injured two workers Wednesday afternoon.

The workers were putting up new wooden tresses on a roof at 10433 Buddlea Drive (935 East) when the trusses tipped over in a domino effect. The trusses were pulled off the men, and both were taken to the hospital with minor injuries for X-ray scans.

"There was no damage to the structure," said Toby Kerby, battalion chief for Sandy Fire Department. "It looked to me like they were adding rooms to a house and making the roof sloped."
