A worker was injured when a trench wall collapsed at a construction site in Westport Friday.
Police said two people were working in a trench installing a water line on Newtown Turnpike when a trench wall collapsed, trapping one of them from the waist down.
Other workers were able to free the victim before first responders arrived. The victim was taken to a local hospital with what fire officials described as non-life-threatening injuries.
The Newtown Turnpike was shut down but has since reopened.
An OSHA representative was called in to investigate.
No other details were immediately available.
