KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) -

Killeen Police said a man is in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after being trapped in his pickup underneath an 18-wheeler.

Police said a gold Dodge Ram pickup was partially pinned underneath an 18-wheeler trailer near the area of Willowsprings and Trenton.

The Killeen Fire Department and two wreckers arrived to help free the man.

The preliminary investigation revealed the pickup was traveling northbound in the 1100 block of Willowsprings Rd. when the man failed to stay in a single lane, leaving the roadway on the east side.

He then hit a guide wire for a utility pole, hit a sign for an apartment complex, hit a gas meter and traveled north through a field area, coming to a stop when hitting the stationary 18-wheeler.

The investigation is ongoing.
