Wind gusts Wednesday morning toppled scaffolding at the new G-Will Liquors construction site in Cottage Grove -- for the second time in a week.

One worker sustained cuts in the collapse that happened about 10 a.m., according to police. The worker had been taken to Woodwinds Hospital by coworkers before police and fire units arrived. An ambulance was cancelled en route.

The construction site is on Grange Boulevard just west of Hadley Avenue, across the street from the current G-Will LIquors store.
