A man operating a bulldozer was seriously injured Wednesday morning when the vehicle flipped over into an embankment at an Osceola County construction site, fire officials said in a tweet. The rollover accident occurred before noon at the construction site along Jones Road and Wetland Place in St. Cloud, according to fire rescue. Crews said the bulldozer driver sustained “serious injuries” after the machine flipped over, falling about 20 feet down into an embankment. Osceola crews got help from the St. Cloud Fire Department to successfully perform a trench rescue, after which the driver was airlifted to the hospital, officials said.
