WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- A man was trapped under his vehicle in the 500 block of 14th Street NW in D.C. on Monday morning.

The incident happened inside the JW Marriott loading dock at approximately 10 a.m.

Fire officials say that somehow the person, believed to be the operator of the tow truck, became trapped under the truck's back wheels while he was trying to hook up another vehicle.

Firefighters had to lift the tow truck off of him. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

A firefighter was also injured but his injuries were minor, according to fire officials.

We are working to gather more details.
