Three men were taken to trauma centers after the construction equipment they were on collapsed, throwing them to the roof. The accident happened on Northwest 57th Avenue, just south of the Dolphin Expressway.

A construction accident just south of the Dolphin Expressway resulted in three workers being taken to trauma centers Thursday morning.

Just before 10 a.m., Miami-Dade Fire Rescue answered a call at the corner of Northwest 12th Street and 57th Avenue where construction lifts toppled, sending three workers crashing onto a roof.

Rescue workers put the injured men on stretchers, then cranes to get them off the roof.

This bulletin will be updated as more information becomes available.
