SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - One man is lucky to be alive after his truck plummeted off a highway overpass early Wednesday morning.
A Springfield state trooper told 22news around 2:00 a.m. they received a call that a vehicle plunged from the Route 5 overpass onto Interstate 91 south below. The pickup truck apparently hit the guardrail, taking down some tree limbs down, before landing on the passenger side.
Witnesses said they saw the driver crawl out of his crushed vehicle. The man was transported to Baystate Medical Center. His condition is unknown at this time.
The accident was still being cleared Wednesday morning and that could create traffic problems on I-91 south between Agawam and Longmeadow, exits 3 and 1.
