Earlier this week, two hard-working Central Iowa employees were injured after accidentally coming inot contact with an overhead power line.
Two people were injured Monday morning in Ames after a cement truck came into contact with an overhead power line.
Ames officials say Kevin Keech, 54, and Matthew Rhodes, 46, were operating in or near the concrete truck at 3505 Lincoln Way when the accident happened about 9 a.m.
Keech is an employee with Iowa State Ready Mix and Rhodes is employed by Hetzler and Rhodes Concrete Construction. Both men were treated at Mary Greeley Medical Center, but Keech was later transported to University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics.
Anytime anyone is working with or near power lines, there is an incredible risk of injury.
