Two con­struc­tion work­ers were badly hurt when the hydraulic lift they were inside was hit by a tractor-trailer on Inter­state 69.

The Steuben County Sheriff’s Depart­ment says the work­ers were on the lift under­neath a bridge over the high­way near Angola when it was hit.

The semi dri­ver told police he had slowed in the con­struc­tion zone when the truck’s pas­sen­ger side hit the lift’s bucket.

The impact knocked worker Bran­don Mor­ris onto the road­way, while another worker, Ted Cook, remained inside the bucket.

Both were taken to a hos­pi­tal in seri­ous to crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Both men work for Pio­neer Asso­ciates of Albion.
