WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– A worker was hurt after being “knocked aside” by a tractor trailer truck on Reed Avenue in West Hartford Thursday morning.
Police say just after 8 a.m., an employee of Woodland Moving, identified as 46-year-old Daniel McKay, Windsor, was advised of a mechanical problem with one of the company owned trucks. When McKay exited the cab and walked to the front of the truck, the freight-liner rolled forward and knocked him aside. Police say the truck was either not in gear or slipped out of gear when it rolled.
Another employee was able to get in the truck immediately and stop it from rolling further.
McKay suffered a laceration on his and was treated on the scene. He was taken to Hartford Hospital for an evaluation.
Reed Avenue is open to traffic.
