The Staton House Fire Department used an extraction tool to rescue a man who crashed his vehicle into a tractor-trailer on Sugg Parkway Tuesday afternoon.

The crash occurred about 3:20 p.m. when the driver of a silver Toyota SUV traveling south on Sugg Parkway near The Daily Reflector building crossed the centerline and ran off the road to the left. A tractor-trailer traveling north appeared to try to avoid hitting the Toyota by going off the road to the right, but the SUV crashed into the front of the truck.

The crash severely damaged the front and passenger side of the SUV. The driver of the SUV was unconscious and slumped over against the driver’s side window when Staton Road Fire Department, the State Highway Patrol and other emergency vehicles arrived at the scene.

The driver’s side door was locked, so the fire department members began to force the driver’s side door open using an hydraulic spreader, and as they did, the man regained consciousness. Once they opened the door, they put a neck collar around his neck, and with the help of the firefighters, the man was able to take a step or two to the awaiting gurney.

The man was loaded into an ambulance and transported to Vidant Medical Center for treatment. The driver of the tractor-trailer, which is owned by Averitt Express, was not injured.
