The accident happened during morning rush hour at a commercial construction site near Berkshire Lake Boulevard and Drovers View Trail.
MedStar spokesperson Matt Zavadsky says it appears that a dump truck started to roll and pinned the male worker underneath. “The truck was delivering construction materials to that area at the time that this occurred,” he said. “It appears the truck may have moved inadvertently and gotten him caught up in some of the undercarriage of the vehicle.”READ MORE: No Injuries Reported After Propane Tank Explosion At Texas Motor Speedway
