MADISON, Wis. -

The man who died in an accident at a Mazomanie business Wednesday is identified as Marc Nondorf, 54, of Dodgeville, according to the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Nondorf was killed at Wick Buildings when a load of trusses collapsed on him.

Deputies and paramedics were called to 341 Walter Rd. in Mazomanie, at about 8:45 a.m. for a workplace accident.

The Sheriff’s Department said Nondorf was moving trusses -- architectural frames used in constructing buildings -- onto a flatbed trailer when the structures collapsed on him.

Nondorf died as the result of blunt force trauma injuries, according to the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the workplace accident.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
