Two injured when house collapses By KERRY CRAIG News-Telegram Staff Writer This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Two people were injured, one seriously Wednesday morning when an old house that was being demolished collapsed, trapping a young man between a wall and roof of the structure. First reports indicated two people were trapped inside the house, but first responders said both had been freed by the time they arrived on the scene at 115 Nicholson St. Police Chief Jay Sanders said the house was being torn down and the two men were working on the second level. “That fell in and they were caught,” Sanders said. “A 17-year-old, he's going to have critical injures and the other man is going to have minor injuries.” The injured youth was reported to have sustained a severe head injury and was unconscious when he was airlifted to Trinity Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler. The names of the injured were not immediately released.
