Three workers at the Fix50 construction site were struck by a large piece of lumber at about 11 a.m. today, and have been transported to a hospital, California Highway Patrol officials said.
CHP spokesman Officer Michael Bradley said the accident unfolded at 10:59 a.m.
Bradley said it appears a construction worker on the project was carrying a piece of lumber and it swung out into traffic. A passing big rig struck the wood and propelled it into the three.
Caltrans officials said one Caltrans employee and two Myers company workers were injured. One sustained moderate to major injuries, while the other two sustained minor to moderate injuries, Bradley said.
Sacramento Fire officials say they are on-scene at eastbound Highway 50, west of 16th street. The three victims have been transported to a hospital.
