Two Injured in Construction Mishap

LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — A midair collision between a crane and a lift truck leaves two workers with minor injuries.

The Columbus Fire Department used its ladder truck and had its rope team on standby following the accident Tuesday morning on the Mississippi Steel Processing site adjacent to Severstal Steel.

Mississippi Steel is expanding and the crews were working on that project.

The two workers were in a bucket on a lift truck when the crane moving a piece of equipment hit the lift. That penned the buckets against a pole.

The two workers suffered hand and back injuries.
