WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say five men were taken to hospitals after being burned at an asphalt plant in Wichita.

KFDI reports two of the men were flown to a hospital with critical burns following the accident Tuesday afternoon at Shilling Construction Co. The other three were taken to hospitals by ambulance.

Sedgwick County Division Chief Walter Rooney says the workers apparently were splashed by hot tar. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been called to investigate the incident.
