Two people were injured in a crash involving an overturned aerial-lift truck on February 4, 2021, in Santa Rosa, California.
Firefighters with the Sonoma Valley Fire District had to extricate at least the driver from the truck. One patient was flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital with moderate to major injuries, while the other was transported by ambulance to Sonoma Valley Hospital. Both occupants were expected to recover from their injuries, firefighters said.
The truck had been towing a wood chipper, and a considerable amount of debris spilled during the crash. The truck also leaked a substantial amount of motor oil. Mechanical issues contributed to the truck crashing headlong into a tree while traveling down an incline, according to a report in The Press Democrat.
