MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say two construction workers were injured in an accident at a work site along the Loop 202 freeway in west Mesa.

Mesa Fire and Medical spokesman Forrest Smith says the workers suffered “crushing type injuries” Tuesday morning while they were in a 4-foot-deep trench where a power shovel was being used.

Detailed information on the workers’ injuries was not released but Smith said both were in stable condition when transported to hospitals.

He said the accident will be investigated by work-site safety officials.
