Justin Merriman | Tribune-Review - A worker sits along N. Highland Avenue where scaffolding at a hotel construction site collapsed on two cars on Wednesday afternoon, June 18, 2014. Two workers were taken to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Oakland for injuries that police described as non-life threatening. Police said the workers were on a “sky lift,” a piece of heavy equipment that, similar to scaffolding, allows construction crews to work on a structure's exterior from an elevated platform. The building, bounded by Kirkwood Street, North Highland Avenue and Broad Street, is being renovated to become Hotel Indigo, a 137-room boutique hotel slated to open this year.
