A construction worker was injured while working on Avenida de la Playa in La Jolla Shores around 11:15 a.m. Friday (March 20). San Diego Fire & Rescue was called and was able to stabilize the worker before taking him to Scripps Memorial Hospital.
Other workers were able to extricate the man, who has not been identified, from the trench. The worker was in the trench dug to replace the sewer and water lines as part of an ongoing project. Unknown circumstances led dirt to spill on him.
