COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - A portion of the Texas A&M University equestrian center under construction has collapsed.
KBTX-TV reports some workers were hurt in Saturday morning's accident but that everyone has been accounted for. Twisted metal beams could be seen at the site where a frame appears to have toppled.
A&M spokesman Lane Stephenson confirmed there had been an accident at the equestrian center on university property about a mile from the College Station campus. Stephenson had no immediately information on whether anyone had been injured.
Messages left with A&M police were not immediately returned.
