A worker was killed in a construction accident that occurred on Monday, January 24 on the University of Iowa arts campus.

The art building and many other buildings were damaged in the 2008 Iowa River flooding, which is estimated to have caused more than $743 million in damage.
Hammons, of Washington state, was employed by a private contractor.
