Authorities say one person has been killed after the frame of a roof under construction at a North Carolina church collapsed.
Sampson County spokeswoman Susan Holder says that two people also were injured when the roof collapsed Thursday afternoon.
Holder says the cause of the collapse at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church in Clinton has not been determined.
Aerial views of the accident showed the collapse occurred on a construction site separate from the main church about 70 miles south of Raleigh. No one answered a phone call at the church Thursday afternoon.
