Two construction workers were injured Friday morning when scaffolding collapsed at a construction site near 59th and Peoria Avenues.

The Glendale Fire Department said two people were transported to the hospital with serious injuries but neither appears to be life-threatening.

The two men were reportedly wearing helmets when the collapse happened, and were helped by workers after they fell about 30 feet.

Police said the incident appears to be an accident and is not being considered suspicious in nature.
