Emergency crews on Wednesday, May 4, worked to free a driver who was trapped in a semi-truck that had overturned at Stonehill Drive and Palo Alto Street, according to the Orange County Fire Authority.
Responding to the incident that occurred at 10:04 a.m., a rescue team used the “jaws of life” to cut the cab apart and free the driver, OCFA Capt. Thanh Nguyen said.
The driver was transported to a nearby hospital.
Stonehill Drive was temporarily closed to traffic between Del Obispo Street and Selva Road while Public Works and emergency responders were on-site.
The street has since been reopened to traffic going both directions, according to a press release from the City of Dana Point.
This is a developing story.
