An excavator working near a cemetery K of C Road in Bishop's Falls toppled over while being unloaded from a flatbed Wednesday afternoon, according to Constable Rory Jeddore with the Grand Falls-Windsor RCMP.
The operator of the machine was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The provincial Department of Environment were called for clean up of the small amount of spilled fuel, and workers on scene said they were attempting to move the excavator out of the area.
There is no word on who the excavator belonged to, or what work they were doing there.
