FARGO – An unconscious man with a head wound was found alone on a south Fargo street Thursday morning – the victim of an apparent work accident, according to police.

An officer driving on the 2000 block of 21st Avenue South, just south of Interstate 94, discovered the man about 10:30 a.m., said Lt. Mike Mitchell of the Fargo Police Department.

The man, who appeared to be a construction worker, was next to a work vehicle parked by an electrical box, Mitchell said.

It’s not clear how the man was hurt, but police found a hand tool near him, the lieutenant said. The man, whose identity was not released, was taken to Essentia Health.

Mitchell said he did not know the man’s condition, only that he remained unconscious Thursday afternoon.
