LOCKPORT, N.Y. — A Lockport man is in the hospital following an industrial accident on Friday afternoon.

First responders were called Custom Crews on Old Niagara Road in Lockport just after noon for a report of a male trapped underneath several tons of equipment.

Investigators say Allan J. Pichey, 57, was found trapped underneath a partially disassembled culvert cleaning unit.   They say he, along with another male, was working on the equipment when a portion of the unit shifted and fell, pinning Pinchey to the concrete floor. 

Rescuers were able to free Pichey.  He was taken to ECMC by Mercy Flight for a leg injury.
