A man has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg after an accident at a construction site on the South Perth Esplanade this morning.

A WorkSafe spokeswoman said a crane was being used to lift a bundle of steel scaffolding planks onto a truck with the truck driver standing nearby when the incident happened.

She said some of the planks fell out of the sling and hit the truck driver.

The incident happened about 10.20am and will be investigated by WorkSafe.
