(FRENCH LICK) - An Otwell man working on a road construction project near the French Lick Airport was injured Wednesday morning when his utility terrain vehicle rolled onto his leg.

According to an Indiana State Police report, 35-year-old Ryan Schwenk, was working in a construction area at County Road 300 South and County Road 375 South when he attempted to negotiate his company's 2007 Kabota UTV down a steep hillside and the front wheel got caught in the rugged terrain.

The UTV rolled over on the driver's side landing on Schwenk's leg.

Schwenk complained of leg and back pain and was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper for treatment.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department and an IU Health Paoli Hospital ambulance assisted at the scene.
