Ottawa County SheriffZEELAND, Mich. — Crews responded to what they describe as an industrial accident on Wednesday morning, in which an excavator ended up on top of a dump truck, trapping one person.

Police responded to the call at ODL, a company on East Roosevelt in Zeeland.  The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office says a person was trapped in the dump truck after an excavator landed on top of it.

A representative from ODL told FOX 17 that it was a dump truck that had simply tipped over, and all information would need to come from Schippers Excavating.  As of 8:20 a.m., there was nobody available to answer phone calls.

Right now, it is unclear if there are any injuries.

    This story is not even correct. An excavator did NOT fall on the truck, the trailer tips over smashing the cab due to an uneven load. The excavator was only there after the fact to tip the trailer back up right from it's side. Please get your information straight before you report something.
