Construction worker seriously injured in forklift accident

An unusual construction site accident leaves one worker seriously injured.

Crews were called to the area of 54th and Newport Avenue, just north of Sorensen Parkway around 9:15 Friday morning, where they found a large fork lift on its side. 

Paramedics took the fork lift driver to the hospital, while firefighter crews worked to get the fork lift upright again.

The driver's injuries are not considered life threatening.

OSHA investigators were called to the scene.
