A man has serious injuries after an industrial accident at Pearson International Airport.

Peel police were called to the airport in Mississauga around 10:40 a.m.

Const. Sarah Patten said the man became trapped underneath a vehicle and fire crews had to free him.

“He has since been transported to a Toronto trauma centre in serious but non-life-threatening condition,” she explained.

The Ministry of Labour has been contacted and will be conducting an investigation.
