The men involved in a worksite accident that put one in the hospital have been identified.

Grand Forks Police said 46-year-old Todd Chwialkowski was the operator of a vehicle moved while technicians at Big Jim's Tire Service on Gateway Drive were working on a trailer tire attached to the vehicle early Monday morning.

One technician, 23-year-old David M. Nordel, was run over by the trailer when Chwialkowski moved it.

Nordel remains hospitalized at Altru, police said. Altru officials told the Herald Nordel is in serious condition.

The incident remains under investigation.
