According to the sheriff’s office, two employees were working at the Skookumchuck Wind Energy Project when a trench collapsed on top of them. Crews rescued one person who was partially buried. The other person was completely covered and died.

Authorities said the trench was being built near a logging road. The project is slated to add wind turbines to the wind farm.
