Jaws of Life Used to Extricate Ukiah Man from Truck Following Crash

A driver was trapped for nearly three hours in his vehicle following a crash near Mill Creek dam. The Ukiah Valley Fire Authority says the Dodge Ram pickup truck was wedged into a large oak tree on the side of a steep hill along the road. Three juvenile passengers were able to exit the truck, but UVFA crews had to use the Jaws of Life and other tools to remove the vehicle’s interior before they could get to the 20-year-old male driver from Ukiah.
