NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A worker was taken to the hospital Monday morning when the excavator he was driving flipped after hitting a hole at a demolition site.
Capt. Mike Hicks with the Norfolk Fire Department told WAVY.com the incident occurred in the 200 block of North Military Highway around 9:45 a.m. Officers originally received a call of a structure collapse with individuals trapped.
Once crews arrived on scene, they found an employee with a demolition company trapped inside the excavator. The driver was moving across some rubble when the rubble fell into a small hole. The driver then struck the hole and flipped the excavator, Hicks said.
The driver complained of minor injuries and was transported to the hospital as a precaution.
Wet weather is expected to move into the area over the weekend, forcing some areas to cancel or change their holiday events.
Four vehicles were involved in a crash on Route 17 in Gloucester Friday morning.
Hampton Police want to prevent crime and have remixed a holiday classic to deter thieves from being Grinches.
