COLLEGE STATION Two people injured in the collapse of a barn frame under construction at Texas A&M University have been released from the hospital.

St. Joseph Regional Health Center spokesman Tim Ottinger said Sunday afternoon that one person, a 35-year-old, remains in critical condition after Saturday's incident.

Jonathan Hernandez and Brian Pineda-Palma, both 22 years old, were hospitalized overnight and released Sunday, according to hospital officials.

Five workers were hurt after the barn frame crash at an $80 million equestrian complex under construction.

Twisted metal beams could be seen at the site. Ground on the project was broken last fall.
