Two men injured, hospitalized after fall from roof
Two Vicksburg men are at University of Mississippi Medical Center following a work-related accident in downtown Vicksburg Wednesday morning.
Sometime after 9 a.m., emergency medical teams were dispatched to a building at the corner of Monroe and Clay Streets on reports the two men had fallen from the roof of the two-story building.
Those two men, The Post has learned, are Dickie Martin, owner of Martin Electric, and developer Darryl Hollingsworth.
Hospital officials confirmed one individual is currently in critical condition, while the other in stable condition. Due to patient privacy guidelines, the hospital did not say which individual was listed in which condition.
Vicksburg Fire Department Deputy Chief Trey Martin said the two men fell from the roof while they were reportedly inspecting electrical equipment.
Martin said the preliminary investigation has led officials to believe slick conditions on the roof may have led to their fall. He added the incident remains under investigation.
He added both individuals were transported to UMMC by ambulance.
