Worker's arm crushed at I-5 bridge construction

BURLINGTON -- Authorities say a construction worker's arm was crushed while working on the new section of the I-5 bridge over the Skagit River.
The Skagit Valley Herald reports that the worker was walking on a catwalk over the new section of the bridge when a large piece of equipment fell on him Thursday afternoon.
Burlington Police Department officer Jed Cates says the worker was taken to Skagit Valley Hospital for treatment.
