Two construction workers working on a residence hall at Montclair State University were injured when the hydraulic lift they were working from tipped over. University spokeswoman Paula Maliandi says the workers suffered non-life threatening injuries in the accident when they fell from a hydraulic scaffolding lift.

They were taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Paterson.

The accident happened around 1:20 p.m. Thursday.

The building under construction is an as-yet unnamed six-story residence hall. It was not immediately clear how high the workers were when the accident happened.

The cause is under investigation.
