ANGOLA, Ind. (21Alive) -- Two men were taken to a hospital Thursday afternoon after a semi-truck collided with a cherry picker on Interstate 69 just south of Angola.
Around 1:30 p.m., the Steuben County Sheriff's Department says the semi, driven by Adams Sparks of Indianapolis, hit the elevated work platform at milemarker 345.
Ted Cook of Marion and Brandon Morris of Columbia City were inside the bucket of the cherry picker, dismantling support beams during bridge repairs.
Morris fell 13 feet from the bucket to the highway below.
Police list Cook and Morris in either serious or critical condition.
Sparks told police he did not see the bucket of the cherry picker leading up to the crash. Authorities add Sparks was not impaired at the scene. He was not cited in the crash.
Police say traffic was backed up for about 45 minutes and has since gone back to normal traffic flow.
The extent of the injuries the two workers sustained is not known but they were taken to the hospital from the scene.
