Earlier this week, two men sustained injuries after being temporarily pinned between two vehicles at a construction site in downtown San Diego. According to the city’s Fire-Rescue Department, the accident was reported around 12:20pm.
Apparently the two men were perched atop the tailgate of a truck eating lunch when a car backed up, hitting the vehicle parked in front of the truck and pushing the truck into the other vehicle. Construction crews noticed the accident and worked quickly to push the vehicles apart.
The motor vehicle accident victims, ages 25 and 35 years, were found lying on the ground when rescue crews arrived at the scene. They were both taken to a local hospital and their names have not been released.
