VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - The Wabash Valley is coming together to help three construction workers who were recently injured on Interstate 70.
The accident happened on Sept. 27 when three men fell through the bridge on I-70 into Thompson Ditch. That fall was about 40 to 50 feet.
All three men suffered serious injuries, some requiring multiple surgeries. That is why the community is putting on benefits to help out.
The first benefit will be Oct. 14 at the Sullivan County 4-H grounds from 4 to 7 p.m. This is to benefit Jerry Souders, who is a construction worker as well as a volunteer firefighter.
There will be a meal as well as raffles. For more information on this benefit, click here.
A second benefit will be for Cameron Wagner on Oct. 21. There will be a pulled pork dinner at the Young Men’s Club in West Terre Haute. This event will be from 4 – 7 p.m. and the dinner will cost $7.
To make a donation or ticket information, call (812) 870-2440.
A third benefit is in the works for the third worker who was injured. When we have that information, we will pass it along.
