WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a West Fargo man injured while working at a construction site.

Police say 34-year-old Nicholas Prochnow was taken to a hospital Monday afternoon after his right arm became caught in a soil-boring auger. Authorities say Prochnow was doing soil testing in an area where some new apartment buildings are being built.

Prochnow’s condition was not immediately available Tuesday.
