For so far unknown reasons a driver allowed his vehicle to go off Highway 49 near Reader Ranch Road in the North San Juan area this morning. North San Juan Fire Engineer Shawn Olson says they got the call to respond…
Olson says the vehicle was a silver Dodge Ram pickup, it appeared it had rolled several times before coming to a stop on it’s rooftop.
Firefighters had to use chain saws to cut a path through the thick brush to get to the victim. Olson says the driver was conscious and they put the patient on a backboard to carry him to a waiting ambulance. The CHP was on scene. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
