Bridge accident on reservation kills one, injures others

Part of a bridge under construction on the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota collapsed on Tuesday, killing one worker and injuring three others.

Workers were assembling a support structure on the 4,200-foot Four Bears Bridge when it fell over, said Tex Hall, chairman of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation. The worker who died was apparently pinned by the structure.

Tribal, state and federal officials are investigating the cause of the accident.
