A construction worker has been injured after the forklift he was driving rolled on top of him on Sydney’s north shore.
Four NSW Ambulance crews as well as a specialist operations team rushed to a construction site on Willoughby Road in Crows Nest this morning following reports a man had been injured in a workplace accident.
When they arrived they found a man in his mid-30s had been driving a forklift down a ramp in the building’s basement when it rolled, crushing him in the process.
He sustained chest and arm injuries, including a potential punctured lung.
A Toll rescue helicopter also attended the scene.
The man was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
