ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) - Two construction workers died and a third was injured but in good condition today following a scaffold collapse at a hospital construction site.

The accident happened yesterday morning when the two men fell about 50 feet. The scaffold they were working on collapsed outside the Seton Medical Center Williamson in suburban Austin. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

A third man was struck by falling debris and taken to an area hospital, where he is listed in good condition.

The men's names have not been released by authorities.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the accident. Authorities say it appears the scaffold collapsed from the top down.
