Man trapped in truck after driving off cliff

A man was trapped inside his truck after reportedly driving off a cliff near Wendy’s in Fayetteville just after 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to Fayetteville Fire Department.

Capt. Dennis Milam said the Ford F-150 fell approximately 30 feet and rescue crews had to use the Jaws of Life to remove doors on both sides of the vehicle to get the driver out safely.

Milam said the driver sustained several broken bones but was responsive while rescue crews removed him from his vehicle.

General Ambulance, Jan-Care Ambulance, Fayetteville Fire Department and Fayetteville Police Department responded.
