Two people were critically injured Wednesday at the SK Battery construction site in Commerce.

Reports indicate that a man fell onto another person at the facility.

“First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers go out to the workers involved in this incident and their families," said an SK spokesman. "We are grateful for the swift response and assistance of local emergency personnel. We are working with our contractors to investigate this matter thoroughly and are absolutely committed to worker safety as the top priority at the site. We have stringent measures with our contractors to ensure proper safety procedures are in place and will reinforce those measures with our contractors.”

The condition of the injured isn't known at this time, officials said.
