A man was injured when he became trapped under a trailer Tuesday morning.

According to Platteville police, the man was trying to unload a piece of equipment at 1015 N. Elm St. around 9:40 a.m. when the trailer malfunctioned. The man got under the trailer to try to fix it, and then the trailer shifted, pinning him underneath the trailer.

Officers and other people in the area were able to lift the trailer enough to free the man, police said.

The man was taken to Southwest Health by Southwest Health EMS.
