Man rescued after being pinned under overturned cement truck

MOKULEIA,OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It took firefighters more than an hour to free a 44-year-old man after he was pinned under a cement-mixing truck in a remote area of Mokuleia.

The man was in stable condition Friday afternoon with an injury to his left leg.

Firefighters were called to the scene on the Mokuleia forest reserve access road about 1:33 p.m., and arrived about 1:47 p.m.

The difficult location was made worse by the precarious positioning of the truck and concerns that the roadway wasn't stable.

The man, who works for a company called Island Ready-Mix, was freed about 3:17 p.m., and transferred to a local hospital. Emergency crews on the scene say he is in good spirits.
