Crews Rescue Trapped Driver After Overnight Rollover

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Emergency crews rescued a trapped driver early Friday morning after his sport utility vehicle rolled over on the 3200 block of Greenwood.

"It sounded like a tire blowout, and boom," said Joe Barnard, an area resident. "I got up and came outside. One person in there ran across and called 911."

The loud crash startled nearby residents out of their beds right around 2 a.m. They went outside to find an SUV on its side, wedged against a tree.

The driver was trapped in the vehicle for about 30 minutes until police and fire crews arrived. They had to use the jaws of life to get the man out.

At this point, police are investigating the crash, but don't believe alcohol was a factor.
