CONNOQUENESSING TWP — Firefighters rescued a man from an ATV rollover at a pipeline worksite off Shannon Road this morning.
The man was taken by medical helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital with serious injuries, said Dave Bestwick, Butler Township Station 3 assistant fire chief.
The accident happened about one mile from the road and firefighters from the Butler Township and Connoquenessing departments had to access the scene using off-road capable vehicles.
Butler Township used its squad vehicle and a Stokes basket to extricate the patient, who was on a hillside, Bestwick said.
Butler Ambulance Service also responded. State Police were investigating the accident.
