Accident at Toro Rosso construction site
28 August 2014 – Toro Rosso says two construction workers have been injured while working on a new factory building.
The outfit reports that the men were working on the second floor of the structure when the ceiling collapsed. They were swiftly taken to a nearby hospital via ambulance, with their conditions not thought to be serious.
"This morning, at the site where construction of a new building is underway, to become part of the team factory here in Faenza, an accident took place," explained a short statement on the team's official website. "Two of the construction workers were injured while working on the second floor, as they fell when the ceiling collapsed.
"After receiving immediate attention at the site, both men were taken by ambulance to the Cesena Hospital, where neither man is in a serious condition. We wish them both a full and speedy recovery."
Toro Rosso team boss Franz Tost outlined the factory plans to media in Belgium last weekend: "One building is finished and a second building will be finished this time next year. The work is ongoing and we are on schedule.
"In 2016 the infrastructure will reach a level that you should have to be a successful midfield team. From the 2016 season onwards Toro Rosso must be within the first five teams of the Constructors' Championship."
