A driver is in critical condition after being pinned under a tractor-trailer Wednesday afternoon in east Vancouver.
Police, fire and medical crews were dispatched at 4:03 p.m. to Northeast 101st Street and Northeast 72nd Avenue. Crews found a four-door Honda sedan pinned underneath a tractor-trailer, Vancouver Fire Department spokesman Bryan Fredrickson said.
Firefighters called a tow company to lift the semi off the totaled Honda, Fredrickson said. But they were able to extricate the driver, who wasn’t immediately identified, without the tow truck, roughly 15 minutes after crews arrived.
The man was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, Fredrickson said.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit remained on scene for several hours after the crash to investigate.
