A construction worker at Daytona International Speedway suffered a traumatic head injury Saturday morning, according to the Daytona Beach Fire Department. The 43-year old man “…compressed his head between a steel beam and a scissor lift…” while working on the new grand stands on the third floor which is 94 feet above ground. Daytona Beach Fire Department spokesperson Lt. Larry Stoney says the man had been operating the scissor lift and was initially rescued by fellow workers. Firefighters arriving on the scene carried the worker from the third floor to an ambulance. The worker was then transported to Halifax Health Medical Center where he was reported to be in serious but stable condition.
