A man had to be cut from the wreckage of his pickup truck after it hit a tree in Sewickley Township Wednesday night.

Waltz Mill Road was closed near the Madison KOA campground after the truck ran off the road about 7:45 p.m., according to an emergency dispatcher.

The driver, in his late 20s, had no passengers, said Herminie fire Chief Eric Kline.

He hit the tree head-on and was in and out of consciousness as firefighters worked to extricate him, Kline said.

“The dash was compressed down on top of him because of the impact,” he said.

Kline said he could not determine what caused the crash, which is being investigated by state police at Greensburg.

The driver was taken to Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville by medical helicopter, Kline said.
