An accident at a West Campus construction site sent three people to the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

According to Austin-Travis County EMS, three workers fell about 10 feet from a construction site at the intersection of 24th and Nueces streets. One suffered a head injury. The other two were transported to University Medical Center Brackenridge with injuries not expected to be life threatening.

The crews were working on a building intended to be used for student housing.

EMS officials said construction at the site stopped while the construction company conducted an investigation.
