Two Arizona men were injured in a work accident earlier this month at a road work zone in Surprise. According to the Surprise Fire Department, two road workers were injured when a girder fell onto construction equipment at a road construction zone near Bell Road and Grand Avenue. One of the men was seriously injured after falling 40 feet and was airlifted to a trauma center. His condition is unknown. The other man injured was treated for non-life threatening injuries. The road workers were erecting dozens of girders to elevate the roadways. Arizona Department of Transportation says the accident may cause construction delays. The accident remains under investigation and it is unclear if any safety procedures were ignored.
