An earth mover carrying dirt for fill in a 30 foot hole toppled backward into the hole, injuring the unidentified Taylor Northwest employee driving it.


The accident happened just before 2 p.m. Thursday afternoon at the construction site on Brosterhous Road near Murphy Road - bringing Bend Fire crews out to the scene.


Captain Don Segel describes what they needed to do.


"We stabilized the truck. We tied it so it wouldn't move; attached it to equipment with straps. and then we used our aerial ladder and we went in - took men in there to stabilize the patient; and then we had out aerial ladder down into the hole below grade and then we loaded the patient onto the platform of the aerial ladder and extracted him that way and then into the ambulance."


Apparently- the equipment operator began backing up with a load of dirt to fill in the hole and for some reason- was unable to stop and fell into the hole.


The unidentified man was taken to St. Charles Bend with his injuries and we have not been able to verify his status at this time.
