Two construction workers who fell to their deaths Friday at a Winters bridge construction site were identified Saturday by the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office.

Marcus Zane Powell, 25, of Redding and Glenn Hodgson, 49, of Richmond, died when a crane-hoisted basket that carried them broke free at the construction site for the new Winters Putah Creek Car Bridge. The two-man basket plunged 80 feet onto timbers covering a 30-foot hole dug for footings for the bridge.

Gina Moya, chief deputy coroner for Yolo County, said authorities have not determined the cause of death since autopsies are pending.
