Edgewood Men Seriously Injured In Construction Accident

Two Edgewood men were seriously injured in a construction accident in Dubuque County Tuesday morning. The sheriff’s office says it happened in the 22000 block of Basswood Lane in Sherrill. 22 year old Adam Hershberger and 22 year old Raymond Strutzman were working on the wall of a building a few minutes  before 9, when a mechanical lift carrying 2x 4s tipped into the wall causing it to fall. Both men fell about 15 feet to the ground before the wooden structure frame fell on top of them. Both Hershberger and Strutzman were transported to Mercy Hospital. Hershberger was then airlifted to U. of I. Hospitals in Iowa City. The condition of both men is not known at this time. The incident remains under investigation.
