ETOWAH, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say a worker has died in a construction accident in Henderson County.

Sheriff’s Maj. Frank Stout tells local media outlets a construction crew was working in a building off of Highway 64 at around 2:15 p.m. Friday when roof trusses collapsed in a domino effect.

Authorities said 45-year-old Steven Jones from Etowah was killed in the collapse.

Officials say the collapse may have been caused by the wind.
