ST. CHARLES – A man was transported to Delnor Hospital in Geneva with injuries that were not life-threatening after his leg was run over by a lift on a construction site Wednesday in St. Charles.

St. Charles Police spokesman Paul McCurtain said the 48-year-old victim, whose name will not be released, said police and fire authorities got a call shortly before 9 a.m. for a report of a traffic accident with injuries at the corner of North Second Street and Red Gate Road near the bridge.

He said when authorities got to the scene, they determined there was no traffic accident, but that a construction worker had been injured while working. McCurtain said authorities located the man on a pedestrian bridge that runs directly under the Red Gate Bridge.

The man's left leg had been injured by another worker who was driving a lift. He was stabilized at the scene and later transported for treatment.
