That's where a pickup truck left the road and plummeted down an embankment.

The victim was pinned beneath the cab of the truck, but emergency officials were able to free him for transport to hospital in serious condition.

No word what caused the crash.

Traffic is getting through in the area, but will be stopped later today to allow crews to recover the vehicle.
