WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Wichita Falls Fire Department officials rescued a person pinned in with the jaws of life Saturday morning after his truck flipped into a ditch.

WFFD Batallion Chief Randall Reel said first responders received the call just before 10:15 a.m. where a driver heading west on Midwestern Parkway towards Taft Boulevard hit the guardrail and then a fence before his truck flipped the creek upside down.

WFFD officials were able to free the driver with the jaws of life and the latter truck.

Reel said the driver was coherent and conscious but was transported to United Regional by AMR.

A tow truck eventually lifted the truck out of the ditch.

The cause of this pin-in is still under investigation, so stay with Texoma’s Homepage as we learn more.
