Scaffolding at a commercial construction site collapsed during the lunch hour, injuring four people, one of them critically. The three-story high scaffolding was being used for a four story building on Corbin at Prairie Street, a few blocks west of the Northridge Fashion Center. No one was trapped under the debris and all were transported to the hospital, according to the LA Fire Department. Two suffered minor injuries and one other was in moderate condition.
