Road worker 'pinned between machine and post'

A MAN has been taken to hospital after an incident at a roadworks site west of Casino.

Earlier this afternoon the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter was called to Tabulam, where a 38 year old man was hurt while working as part of a road crew resealing the road.

"The man became pinned between the machine and a post," a spokesman from the rescue chopper said.

"He sustained a compound fractured leg."

No further details on the man's condition are available at this stage.
