WEATHERSFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – A landscaping company employee is being treated for “moderate injuries” after an accident in Weathersfield Wednesday afternoon.
It happened just before 2 p.m. at a truck stop off Salt Springs Road.
Weathersfield Fire Chief Tom Lambert says the Enviroscapes employee was spraying for weeds when the Kubota UTV he was driving tipped over and rolled down a steep hill.
Lambert says the victim was trapped inside the UTV that was pinned up against a fence.
“It was very difficult because of the steep hill getting down there. Fortunately, we had A&M Towing. They came right away to help stabilize the vehicle as we were able to cut him out and then we were able to cut away the fence to take him out towards Salt Springs Road. So, we didn’t have to bring him up the steep hill,” Lambert said.
The victim was taken to St. Elizabeth Youngtown Hospital.
Crews from the Austintown Fire Department and Lane LifeTrans also responded to assist.
