— A man was hospitalized after a freak accident in Sanford.

At about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Scott Allen was fixing a shed at 2700 S. Horner Blvd. when it collapsed, police said. The accident happened at the Shed Depot, a business that builds portable outside buildings.

A helicopter took Allen, 26, of Siler City, to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, where doctors listed him in critical condition Wednesday night.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the collapse.
