A man has been taken to hospital after his foot was trapped in a moving vehicle.

The man, aged in his 60s, was taken to Hutt Hospital in a stable condition with leg injuries after the incident in Melling this afternoon. He was unloading cars from a flatbed truck when one started rolling.

Wellington Free Ambulance was called to assist the man about 3.15pm today after he caught his ankle under the pedals of a car on the truck, spokesman Daniel Paul said.

The man was dragged along as it rolled off the truck's ramp.

He was in "a lot of pain" and had been dragged by the car for a considerable distance, Mr Paul said.

It appeared he had been unloading the car from the truck when he became stuck, he added.
