Man injured after truck strikes portable toilet

0601toiletNature called at an unfortunate moment for a construction worker in Oak Point on Thursday.

While working on a new subdivision in the small Denton County town just south of Highway 380, the unnamed man ducked into a portable toilet outside a home under construction along Niles Court.

Within moments, the wide load of a tractor trailer turning onto Niles from Woodridge Drive struck the portable toilet and knocked it over.

The victim was taken to Denton Regional Medical Center, but his name and the extent of his injuries have not been released. The portable toilet sustained moderate damage.

Police said they don’t anticipate filing any charges against the driver of the tractor trailer.
