Worker in critical condition after being ran over by dump truck in Millvale

A construction worker that was run over by a dump truck in Millvale Friday night was upgraded to critical condition, police say.

The 45-year-old victim was listed in grave condition, but was later reported to be in critical but stable condition with a broken hip, reports WPXI.

He was in a manhole when he was run over in the 500 block of Evergreen Avenue when a co-worker drove over it with a dump truck.  The co-worker apparently did not know the victim was in the man hole.

According to officials, the victim became attached to the dump truck and was lifted out of the man hole.

The Gulisek Company, which is based in Mount Pleasant, was performing the work on Evergreen Avenue.  A work at the scene declined to comment on the incident, reports WPXI.
