LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- A man suffered life-threatening injuries in a grass mowing accident in Lexington Wednesday afternoon.

The fire department says a zero-turn mower overturned on the man, trapping him underneath while mowing at UPS Freight on Blue Sky Parkway.

The man’s co-workers were able to get the mower off him before the fire department arrived.

He was rushed to the hospital.  His name wasn’t released.

The accident happened around 3:30 p.m.
