AMBRIDGE (AP) – A worker was hospitalized after his leg was crushed by a piece of pipe at a Beaver County steel plant.

Emergency officials tell the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the worker was injured early Friday at Sippel Steel’s structural steel fabricating plant in Ambridge.

He was transported to a Pittsburgh hospital. His condition was not immediately available.

Sippel Steel did not immediately comment to the newspaper.

The company’s website lists several major projects it has worked on, including Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and the Meadows and Rivers casinos.
