Construction Accident Kills Two Near Marshall

A ditch collapse has claimed the lives of two men trying to repair a water line near Marshall. It happened along Highway 80, about a mile west of Marshall. The bodies of Howard Hopkins and Terry Kelly, both of Marshall, were found early this morning.

The search began when the two didn't come home from work last night. Harrison County Sheriff's deputies found the men's vehicles parked near the work site. Investigators say the men were buried in the 7-foot ditch.
