GREGORY, Texas — Three people were injured when a trench collapses in Gregory.

The incident happened just before noon Tuesday at a worksite near the Glades of Gregory apartment complex.

The Gregory police chief Tony Cano said construction workers were digging with a backhoe when a trench collapsed. The most seriously injured is a man in his 30’s.

Police say the 36-year-old man was pronounced dead later.

The other two men were not as seriously injured.
