RIDGEWAY – The driver of this Chevrolet S-10 pickup escaped serious injury after an accident on Marshall Road, just north of the Erie Canal, today at about 1 p.m.

A state trooper at the scene said the driver, a man about age 25, was travelling south on Marshall Road when he fell asleep, drove off the shoulder of the road and struck a tree stump.

The truck overturned and caught on fire.

Ridgeway firefighters, including Don Marchner (back to camera), put out fire with the truck. The driver was able to crawl out of the vehicle and get a safe distance from the wreck.

The driver had injuries to both feet and was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester by the Medina Fire Department.

The driver hit the stump in the lower right and then overturned the pickup. Lyons Collision in Medina removed the vehicle.
