FOSTORIA - A Fostoria man was hurt yesterday afternoon in an accident at a Loudon Township landfill.
The man, whose name and age were not immediately available, was transported by medical helicopter to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo.
The man had just delivered a load of trash to the Sunny Farms landfill, west of U.S. 23. and was walking around his truck about 1:15 p.m. when he was struck by a mobile compactor - a bulldozer fitted with trash-compacting equipment, Capt. Joe Frankart, of the Bascom Fire Department, said.
