A man was injured Thursday morning after he lost control of his pickup, overcorrected and ran off Statesville Boulevard. The vehicle overturned and came to rest on the driver’s side, temporarily pinning him inside.

No name was immediately available, but according to Trooper K.G. Barringer, the man was placed in an ambulance and taken to the hospital. Specific injuries are unknown at this time.

The single-vehicle crash occurred around 10:51 a.m. in the 5600 block of Statesville Boulevard, near Stoney Knob Road and West Rowan Middle.

Barringer said it’s not clear at this point why the man lost control of the Toyota Tundra, but he said he should know more after talking with the driver once he arrived at the hospital.

Fire crews removed the man from the pickup, said Locke Fire Chief Rusty Alexander.

He said fire personnel had to secure the truck using jacks to keep it from moving.

Franklin Fire Department responded as did Cleveland and Locke, who provided mutual aid. Rowan County Rescue Squad and Rowan EMS also responded.

Alexander said the East Spencer fire chief came upon the crash. A deputy with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office was also on scene.

The road was blocked at Stoney Knob Road so fire personnel could maneuver around the vehicles.
