HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A wall has collapsed at a Hendersonville construction site and two construction workers were killed.

The Tennessean reported a third worker was injured. Keith Douglas of Sumner County Emergency Management Agency said the injured worker was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville after the accident at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
