Rockland firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free a man from his pickup truck Saturday afternoon at the corner of Route 131 and Wallston Road, according to Assistant Fire Chief Adam Miceli.

The Chevy pickup truck rolled over on its side near the intersection, and firefighters had to cut the roof off the vehicle to free the driver.

The driver, Brian Hupper, 45, of St. George, suffered minor injuries in the crash, according to Sgt. Jacob Boyington of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office. Hupper complained of pain in his shoulder following the crash.

Hupper was the lone occupant of the vehicle at the time of the crash, which was reported at about 1:30 p.m.

Boyington said Hupper reported that he was fatigued while driving, and that may have been a factor in the crash.

“We stabilized the truck by attaching rescue struts to both sides, which creates an A-frame so that when we cut the roof any weight would be transferred to the struts and not allow the truck to roll,” Miceli explained in an e-mail. “We then cut the roof posts and bent the roof back toward the bed, allowing EMS full access to extricate the victim.”

The St. George Fire Department, EMS and Knox County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the crash.
