A construction worker was injured today in an accident at a project connected to the Hartford to New Britain busway.

West Hartford Fire Department Battalion Chief Richard Winn says the mishap took place about 25-feet in the air, near Flatbush Avenue.

“The I-beam they were using to move things suddenly shifted, and struck one of the workers,” Winn said.

It was not immediately clear why the I-beam shifted.

The worker was conscious, when he was taken to Hartford Hospital.

A bridge is being built in that area.

The busway’s formal name is CTfastrak.
