Two workmen injured in construction accident at Toro Rosso factory

Two workers have been injured in an accident at the site of Toro Rosso’s Faenza base.

The two men were injured after a ceiling collapsed at a new building that is currently under construction at the team’s factory.

Both men have been taken to a Cesena hospital for treatment, but neither is thought to be in a serious condition.

“This morning, at the site where construction of a new building is underway, to become part of the team factory here in Faenza, an accident took place,” reads a statement released by the team. “Two of the construction workers were injured while working on the second floor, as they fell when the ceiling collapsed.

“After receiving immediate attention at the site, both men were taken by ambulance to the Cesena Hospital, where neither man is in a serious condition. We wish them both a full and speedy recovery.”
