Early Saturday morning Indianapolis (IN) Fire Department firefighters–assisted by a unit from the City of Lawrence–extricated and rescued a 62-year-old man from his overturned truck after he flipped it over a guardrail and landed on a bridge abutment, suspended over a creek.
Officials believe the truck was headed north in the 4300 block of Mitthoeffer Road. It was there that the automobile hit and flipped over the guardrail.
The 74-year-old passenger was able to self-extricate after firefighters removed a window, but the driver was pinned beneath the dash.
Firefighters were able to stabilize and de-energize the vehicle within 20 minutes and, once stabilized, provided ALS medical care to the driver.
