A 44-year-old construction worker suffered injury when his arm was crushed in a construction accident at a Queen Creek construction site on Tuesday.
The accident happened when the worker reached his arm into a piece of equipment to clean something that he thought had become stuck. At which point his arm became caught in the roller, crushing it severely between the shoulder and elbow, according to an official with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
The worker was transported by helicopter to Scottsdale Osborn Hospital where he was listed in serious condition. The construction site is the future location of a Jack in the Box restaurant.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) along with local officials will be investigating the accident further. No one else was injured in the accident.
