Drivers help truck driver escape after being trapped inside overturned cab

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Multiple drivers helped a man who was stuck inside the cab of his truck after his semi-truck flipped over on eastbound Interstate 64 Saturday evening. 

The truck driver was heading westbound near Highway 157 and Caseyville when a 19-year-old woman was trying to exit the interstate. She didn't see the truck and the truck driver swerved to avoid her. As the driver swerved, he lost control, crossed the median and landed in the eastbound lanes. The truck flipped and the driver was pinned inside his cab.

Multiple people pulled over to help the driver who was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He has since been released. 

The road was shut down for two hours, but has since reopened.
