Man Trapped In Truck Survives

A man is dramatically rescued after being trapped inside his truck, upside down for two hours.

The wreck happened on busy U.S. 25 in Scott County.

Just after 11:30 Monday morning, witnesses say a red dump truck traveling south on U.S. 25 in Scott County suddenly crossed in front of them and into the trees.

The Georgetown Scott County EMS, firefighters, and the sheriff's department were all called to the scene to help rescue the trapped man.
They all worked tirelessly to try and get the man out of the truck.

It took two hours but in the end a very thankful 38 year-old Jeffrey Hall was successfully rescued and flown to the UK Medical Center with non life threatening injuries.

Jeffrey Hall is from Versailles, and has since been released from UK Hospital. Hall was driving the truck for C and M Environmental out of Lexington.
