BEE CAVE, Texas -- Three construction workers have been injured after lightning struck Monday afternoon.
The incident happened around 2:45 p.m. at a construction site for the Cielo Apartments located at 3501 South FM 620 near Falcon Head Blvd.
A foreman with the construction crew at the property told KVUE News his crews heard thunder in the area, so he called a site manager to tell him to have the crews stop working. However, three crew members leaning against a metal food truck were hit when lightning struck. It's not yet clear whether lighting hit the truck or just nearby.
All three workers' shoes and socks were knocked off. All three suffered burns to their feet and their hair was singed.
According to an Austin-Travis County EMS spokesperson, the patients were taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge where they are in stable condition.
