ANAHEIM (CBSLA) — A worker who was thrown down a 15-foot-deep hole following a car accident Monday night was responsive, according to Anaheim Police Department officials.

The construction worker was working at the intersection of Ball Road and State College Boulevard when a white vehicle crashed into a piece of construction equipment that then hit a fence that fell onto a construction worker pushing that worker into an open manhole, according to police.

Police said the driver of the white vehicle attempted to flee the scene, but was taken into custody.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
