Bridge collapses in Clay County, Missouri killing construction worker

Bridge collapses in Clay County, Missouri killing construction worker

A bridge under construction collapsed Wednesday afternoon in Clay County, killing one person. The bridge spans Carroll Creek. The scene is east of Kearney. Sarah Boyd, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office, four people were trapped when the structure failed. Three of them were able to free themselves from the collapse. Boyd said in a news release they had minor injuries and were taken to hospitals. One man died. On Thursday, police identified the victim as 22-year-old Connor Ernst. He was a resident of California, Missouri. The sheriff’s office said there were multiple contracting companies on scene at the time of the collapse. The bridge had been closed since 2016, and construction on the two-lane bridge began in May 2021 and was set to open in early 2023. The Clay County Highway Department said there were no safety concerns on the project before the collapse, and an engineering contractor was on scene Wednesday inspecting the bridge before the deck was poured.
