ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers say a man helping to move a house near Palmer was run over by the structure.

KTUU-TV (http://bit.ly/12m6nQD) reports 50-year-old Paul Wolski of Palmer suffered a broken pelvis in the incident Monday afternoon on Trunk Road.

Troopers say Greenstreet General Contracting LLC was towing the 4,000-square-foot ranch home with a loader and had a valid state permit for the operation.

Troopers say Wolski tripped and was run over by a tire underneath the home.

Wolski was flowed by air ambulance to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage. He's listed in serious condition.

State transportation and labor officials are investigating the incident.
