A construction worker was rescued from a 15-foot deep hole he was knocked into when a vehicle crashed into construction equipment in Anaheim, authorities said Tuesday morning.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Ball Road and State College Boulevard about 10:30 p.m. Monday when the vehicle hit the equipment, including a backhoe, sending the worker into the hole, according to Sgt. Lou Correa of the Anaheim Police Department.

The victim was rescued by Anaheim Fire and Rescue crews and taken to a hospital where he was reported responsive and not seriously hurt, Correa said.

The driver was detained and the cause of the crash was under investigation, Correa said.

CBS2 reported the driver attempted to leave the scene, but was quickly taken into custody.
