ROCK ISLAND — Two men were injured about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday when a water truck owned by the Wenatchee Reclamation District rolled down a 40-foot embankment in Rock Island, trapping one of the men.

The two men were riding in a large metal basket that was attached to the front of the truck and serves as a platform for workers, said Don Culp, Douglas County undersheriff in a press release. One of the men, Waylon G. Marshall, 44, of East Wenatchee, was pinned under the basket for about 20 minutes. He was treated at Central Washington Hospital, then was transferred to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was in satisfactory condition this morning. The other man in the basket, Nathan R. Bratton, 34, of Wenatchee, was in satisfactory condition at Central Washington Hospital. The driver of the truck, Brian D. Burkhart, 32, of East Wenatchee, was not treated at the hospital, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
