CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Algonquin police and Algonquin-Lake in the Hill Fire Protection District firefighter/paramedics responded about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday May 21, 2019 when a construction worker was trapped by an excavator against a concrete J-wall barrier (Jersey wall barrier) and severely injured.

The man had been working on the Main Street bridge over the Crystal Lake Outlet tributary to the Fox River, just west of the Fox River and just southwest of Algonquin Road intersection when he was pinned between the excavator equipment and a concrete Jersey barrier. He was released by construction workers on the scene, and was no longer trapped when firefighter/paramedics arrived.

The worker suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital by Algonquin-Lake in the Hill Fire Protection District firefighter/paramedics. A Flight for Life helicopter transferred him to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville at about 9:20 a.m. Tuesday.

The identity of the construction worker and his condition at Advocate Condell Medical Center was not initially released.

Main Street was already closed for the construction project between Algonquin Road and Washington Street.

The construction site accident was the second serious accident involving an excavator in McHenry County in just over two weeks. A Rochelle man was killed on Leech Road near Coral Road in unincorporated Union, Illinois when he was struck by a tree that fell on the excavator that he was operating on Saturday May 4, 2019.
