A man hurt in a work-related accident Tuesday in Jefferson City is in critical but stable condition, authorities said.

Fire crews were called to the 5800 block of Algoa Road just before 9 a.m. Tuesday for a man hurt after three slabs, weighing 1,000 pounds each, fell on him as they were being moved, according to Jefferson City Fire Department reports.

What caused the slabs to fall was not known, and authorities did not identify who the man was working for or the project he was working on.

The man was flown to a hospital in Columbia for treatment of his injuries.
