I-20 Rollover Driver Rescued

   A dramatic scene of rescue at a rollover accident earlier Thursday on Interstate 20 in Gregg County. It happened just before two Thursday afternoon as the eastbound driver lost control of his vehicle and rolled on top of a guard-rail trapping the man inside. Rescue crews had to work quickly to free the 74 year old victim, as fuel was spewing from a ruptured gas tank. Fire units watered down the area, hoping the gas would not ignite. Finally, the driver was free. The driver was hospitalized with broken bones and cuts, but is listed in good condition..
