Two Edgewood Men Injured in Construction Accident

Two Edgewood men were injured in a construction accident Tuesday morning.

It happened in the Sherrill area at 22670 Basswood Lane around 9 am. The Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office says a wooden structure frame from the side of a building was struck and laying on the ground with the two men underneath. Authorities say 22-year old Adam Hershberger and 22-year old Raymond Strutzman were working on the wall when a mechanical lift carrying 2x4s tipped into the wall, causing it to fall.

Both men fell about fifteen feet to the ground before the structure landed on top of them.

Hershberger and Strutzman were both transported to Mercy Hospital. Hershberger was later airlifted to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Their conditions are not known at this time.
