Bobcat Driver Trapped After Collision With Semi-Trailer

A 28-year-old man has been seriously injured after being trapped in a Bobcat for about three hours in Sydney.

Emergency services were called after the man became trapped at a wrecking yard in western Sydney, shortly after midday on Friday.

The tipper of a semi-trailer truck rolled over on top of the Bobcat in Blacktown, and fellow workers tried using a forklift to take some weight off the crushed vehicle until help arrived.
