Man Suffers Injuries in Leetsdale Industrial Accident
The 51-year-old man was trapped for nearly an hour after a forklift ran over him.
A Greensburg man was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital after being run over by a forklift Wednesday morning at a Leetsdale industrial plant.
Bolen was working about 8:25 a.m at Almatis, the former Alcoa plant, when another employee operating a forklift backed up and ran over his foot, breaking his leg in several places, officials said.
“His foot was entrapped under the forklift,” said Leetsdale Fire Chief Ernie Logan.
He was stabilized and transported by Valley Ambulance to the hospital.
