A car crashed through plastic barriers set up around a hole in a Dallas, Texas, street and injured three workers when it fell into the underground construction area.

A report on Fox4 in Dallas showed the vehicle being lifted out of the hole. One worker was pinned by the car and, along with two other workers, was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the car was uninjured.
