Driver seriously injured but stable following morning crash near Cambridge


CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- One man sustained serious injuries when his semi tractor-trailer rolled-over in Cambridge on Thursday morning.
Lt. James Tracy, Commander of the Cambridge Post of the State Highway Patrol, said that the semi was likely going too fast when it exited Interstate 77 northbound at around 9:45 a.m. and tipped over on the off-ramp for U.S. Route 40. The cab of the semi was impaled on the guardrail posts, trapping the driver inside. Crews from the Cambridge Fire Department had to extricate the man from truck by mechanical means.
Lt. Tracy said that the man was conscious when he was pulled from the truck, and had sustained apparent injuries to the arm and leg. A surgeon from Southeastern Med was called to the scene to assess the man's injuries. A medical helicopter was called to the scene of the accident to transport the driver. At last report, he was considered in stable condition, although his arm was badly broken. Additional information about the victim was not immediately available.
