A Prince William man was seriously injured on Tuesday when a rail car toppled over, trapping him under it. Around noon, an open-top rail car carrying gravel tipped on top of the unidentified man in his mid-30s. After rescuers worked for 40 minutes to free him, he was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital.
The train car belonged to Chemung Contracting, a company with a plant in Gainesville, Virginia. Reports from the Washington Post state that the man was a Chemung employee.
