A construction worker in Meriden, CT, suffered serious injuries after being trapped between a collapsed retaining wall and a dump truck. The man had been working at the site of a new car wash when the collapse occurred at approximately 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17th, pinning him against a dump truck before his fellow workers were able to pull him from the rubble and administer CPR.
The injured worker was immediately taken to MidState Medical Center and eventually moved to Hartford Hospital, where he is currently being treated for injuries he sustained in the accident. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) is conducting an investigation into what caused the wall to collapse.
