The semi-driver was injured when his rig collided with the rubble. Had he been a few seconds earlier, the results might have been quite different.

"What appears to have happened is, in essence, an industrial incident a workplace incident with respect to a construction crew that's doing work out here," city manager Harry Black said. "Something went wrong, and a tragedy has occurred as a result. ... We don't believe that there is any additional loss of life."

City officials expect the highway to be closed for at least 48 hours while the investigation and cleanup takes place.
