Injury on the Job


A construction worker clearing trees for an upcoming road-widening project on Albright Road was injured after a fallen tree broke his legs Tuesday.

The incident occurred across the street from Rock Hill Fire Station No. 1 around 4:30 p.m.

The injured worker, 45, received immediate care from fire crews and was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center, said Rock Hill Fire Department Battalion Chief Steve Rogers.

The worker was part of a crew tasked with clearing trees from the road before the road could be widened, Rogers said.

Officials aren’t sure if one of the trees he was moving with heavy machinery fell on him or if a log rolled across his legs, he said.

Rogers said crews will likely work today on figuring out exactly what happened.

He would not release the man’s name, citing patient privacy laws.
