RISING SUN, Md. -- Authorities said four people were injured when the new roof collapsed on a building at the Dove Valley Winery in Cecil County.

Maryland State Police told The Cecil Whig that four people were taken to Christiana Hospital in Delaware after the collapse in Rising Sun on Thursday. Two victims had injuries that were non-life-threatening, and the others were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Foreman Richard McDonald said the workers were checking trusses in the 69-foot by 112-foot structure when he heard a loud crack and the roof collapsed, sending the workers falling about 20 feet.

McDonald said three of the workers were able to get out on their own and the fourth was helped out.

County building inspectors and Maryland Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating.
