A construction worker who fell 23 feet from the Lower Perry Bridge Wednesday afternoon is listed in critical condition in the intensive care unit at Kadlec Medical Center in Richland, Wash.

Karl D. Willhite, 25, of Klamath Falls was working on constructing a wooden platform when he fell from the bridge and landed on rocks, according to the Union County Sheriff’s Office. 

Willhite was transported by Life Flight to Washington.

Medics and law enforcement officers were called to the scene at Interstate 84 Exit 257 shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Willhite is employed with Oregon State Bridge Construction out of Stayton, which was subcontracting with Oregon Mainline Paving for an ODOT-funded project at the site of the accident, police said.

The incident remains under investigation by the Union County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police and ODOT.
