On March 30, 2018 at 1439, the DFD was alerted for an industrial incident with a subject trapped on McKee Rd. E2 and E4 arrived simultaneously to find a backhoe that had struck a fire hydrant barrier pillar. The impact caused the unrestrained driver to be thrown forward and down and under the steering console. The subject’s right leg was wedged and unable to move. R1 arrived on scene. Crews stabilized the backhoe and the subject was lifted without incident up to the seat of the backhoe. The subject was lowered out of the vehicle to a waiting stretcher. He was transported to the local ED for evaluation. The scene was turned over to Dover PD for investigation.
