Rollover pins victim under truck all night

Cameron Rayburn, one of the first responders with the Garrett Area Rural Fire

Department, said the victim, whose name has yet to be confirmed by authorities, was

alert when he arrived but was pinned underneath the truck.

“As soon as the call was dispatched over the radio, we immediately called for air

ambulance to be placed on standby, and once we got on the scene, we determined the

air ambulance would definitely be needed,” he said.

The firefighters were forced to use hydraulic extraction equipment to open a gap between

the driver and the small Chevrolet S­10 pickup.

“It was a small truck, and there was actually very little damage to the truck itself aside

from the fact that it was upside down,” Rayburn said.

The reason it took so long to learn of the wreck, according to Rayburn, is because it

occurred a fair distance off the roadway.
