Oilfied worker hospitalized following accident on job

An accident at an oilfield business in Acadia Parish has one man recovering in a Lafayette hospital.

The incident took place around 5 p.m. Tuesday on Wildcat Loop.

Sheriff's deputies say workers were pumping crude from a vacuum truck to a tank when a rear hatch blew, opening and hitting the victim in the face and in the chest area.

The victim was initially transported to a Jennings hospital before being transported to Lafayette. He is listed in critical condition.
