ZEELAND, Michigan (WZZM) - A construction accident in Zeeland Wednesday morning partially crushed the cab of a dump truck, injuring the driver.

Zeeland Police Corporal Kevin Cisler says a dump truck was in the process of dumping a load of dirt when the trailer part collapsed onto the cab of the truck. The driver of the truck was trapped inside the cab for a time, but was able to get himself out of the cab of the truck before rescue workers arrived.

He did suffer some injuries and was taken to Zeeland Hospital.

Zeeland Police believe some type of mechanical failure or an unbalanced load of dirt cause the incident.

The accident happened shortly after 7:00am in the 200 block of East Roosevelt. Road construction is going on in that area.
