A man was injured Wednesday night after crashing a pickup truck down a steep, rocky embankment and flipping inFranklin Township, Warren County.
The crash happened about 10 p.m. at 80 Mountain View Drive, but it took about 90 minutes for rescue personnel to get the man out of the white Ford because the truck ended up on its roof, leaning slightly toward the driver's side.
Once extricated, the man was taken to a landing zone behind the township fire department and flown by Atlantic Air 1 helicopter to Morristown Memorial Hospital.
The New Jersey State Police trooper who was writing the report on the incident had left for the day and state police at the Washington barracks said just after 6 Thursday morning they won't have any information on the crash until Thursday evening.
Franklin Township fire and EMS personnel were assisted by the Washington Fire Department heavy rescue unit, Clinton First Aid and Rescue Squad heavy rescue unit, Hunterdon Medical Center MICU and the flight medics from Atlantic Air 1.
