Man pulled from mangled truck on US-60 in Powhatan

POWHATAN, Va. (WRIC) — Police responded to a single-vehicle accident on US-60 in Powhatan near County Line Road early Wednesday.

State Police, Powhatan, and Chesterfield Fire conducted a “joint effort” to extract the man from the mangled truck.

He was rescued just before 6 a.m. and flown to VCU Medical Center. There have been no updates about his condition other than that he is alive.

All eastbound lanes are now open after being shut down while the rescue efforts took place.

A man who identified himself as a friend of the victim spoke with 8News reporter Evanne Armour on the scene.

After the friend witnessed the truck being pulled from the ditch, he says it’s a miracle the victim made it out alive.
