Front Street Construction Accident Injures Four

By Beth Milligan | May 20, 2020

Four workers were injured - one seriously - in a construction accident at the site of a new four-story Honor Bank development at 415 East Front Street Tuesday.

According to Traverse City Fire Department Chief Jim Tuller, emergency personnel were called just before 9am to the scene in response to a collapsed building. Four workers were injured in the accident, including one who was buried in debris up to his waist and suffered significant lower body injuries. Because of fears of collapse of a second nearby elevator tower which was damaged in the accident, all four workers were quickly removed from the scene in under 10 minutes and taken to Munson Medical Center, according to Tuller. The cause of the collapse is not yet known.

Emergency personnel remained on the scene evaluating the site for its stability, with Front Street closed between Boardman and Wellington. Given the damage to the site, Tuller says he expects construction will be closed for some time at the property as the accident is investigated and clean-up occurs.
