A PennDOT worker was injured on the job Wednesday in Monongahela.

Earnest Crawford was flown by emergency helicopter to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, where he was listed in fair condition Wednesday afternoon.

A flagman on the job, Crawford was struck by a car driven by Valerie Vestrat of Monongahela at 7:23 a.m. at the corner Fourth and William streets, Monongahela police reported.

At the time of the accident, traffic had been stopped in both lanes for a roller to be brought onto Fourth Street.

Vestrat told police she was blinded by the sun and did not see the flagman, causing her Ford Ranger to strike him in the leg.

Police and PennDOT are jointly investigating the accident.

Crawford was treated at the scene by Tri-Community Ambulance personnel before being flown to AGH.
