A 25-year-old man is in hospital following an industrial accident in Saskatoon on Tuesday.

It happened some time after 10 a.m. CST at Vitran Express, a freight and distribution company in the city's north end.

The worker was trying to change a tire when he got pinned under a forklift.

The man was hit in the head, and his hand was also hurt.

Fire crews had to use air-lifting bags to lift the 1,360-kilogram machine off the man's hand.

Occupational Health and Safety officials are investigating.

His injuries are not believed to be life threatening, police said.
