A construction management official says a review of structural connections at the Cincinnati casino where a collapse injured more than a dozen workers found no bolts missing.

The president of casino construction manager Messer Construction Co. told state casino regulators Wednesday that the investigation is continuing. He told them he cannot say what caused the collapse and that will come out when the investigation is completed.

Work resumed Wednesday morning in unrestricted areas at the site five days after a floor collapsed as concrete was being poured.

The injuries from Friday’s accident were mostly minor. A hospital spokesman says the one worker still hospitalized remained in serious condition Wednesday.

The collapse occurred weeks after a similar Cleveland casino accident with the same developers, who say the cases aren’t linked.
