MERRIMAC, Mass. (AP) — Police say four people were injured after a wall collapsed during the construction of a home in northeastern Massachusetts.

Authorities were called to the Merrimac home at around 1 p.m. Tuesday.

The Merrimac building inspector and workplace regulators are working to determine the cause of the collapse.
