Photo Story Md. Crews Rescue Driver from Truck Rollover

The driver of a tractor-trailer that rolled over was freed by firefighters in Howard County on Jan. 20. 

Around 2:30 p.m., firefighters and paramedics responded to an overturned tractor trailer on the ramp from northbound I-95 to westbound Md.32.

It was determined that the vehicle was on the edge of a ravine so crews used heavy duty ratchet straps to tie the tractor and trailer back to a tower ladder truck parked about 20 feet away.

Hydraulic rescue tools were used to free the driver from the wreckage and he was transported to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Maryland State Police and the Maryland Department of the Environment Hazmat Team were also on scene.

Units on scene: Tower 10, Engine 10, Engine 11, Engine 61, Paramedic 105
