DOVER, Del.- Dover officials say two city employees suffered electric flash-related injuries Thursday while working on equipment as part of the city's reconstruction program.

The incident occurred shortly after 8 a.m. Independence Boulevard near the Route 8 intersection. Dave Hiser, 27, and Dave Boyd, 41, were both transported to Kent General Hospital for burns, where Hiser is listed in stable condition. Boyd was transferred to Crozer Medical Center where he is listed in critical condition.

"I cannot convey the way this makes all of us feel," said City Manager Scott Koenig. "Any accident of this nature is very serious and hits home when it is part of the City of Dover family.  Please keep these members of our staff and their families in your thoughts and prayers." 

The incident remains under investigation.
