(KSL News) A construction accident sent a man to the hospital this afternoon.
Authorities say construction crews were refueling a milling machine at 9800 South and State Street. In the middle of the process, something ignited the fumes.
The explosion knocked a 47-year-old worker back about 25 feet into the air. He landed on his feet, but injured his ankles and was burned on his face. He was taken to the University Burn Center.
The incident is under investigation.
