Montgomery County police have released the name of the construction worker killed when a parking garage partially collapsed last Thursday.

Carroll Dexter Wills, 57, of Prince Frederick, died Thursday afternoon when the 50,000-pound concrete slab gave way and trapped the worker at Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda.

Owners of the mall say that portion of the garage was under renovation to create a new food court and movie theater.

Another worker, who was pinned for hours, was rescued and flown to Baltimore Shock Trauma center. That unidentified person is listed in seriously condition. The cause of the collapse is still under investigation.
