Firefighters work to extricate the driver involved in a collision that sent the driver's truck down a hillside and into a drainage ditch in De Luz.

DE LUZ – North County Fire Protection District reported a traffic collision at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, in the area of Sandia Creek Drive and West Sandia Creek Terrace that resulted in a truck going off the roadway and trapping the driver inside.

About an hour after firefighters arrived, the patient was extricated, hauled up the hillside and transported to the hospital. The condition of the driver was unknown.

While firefighters were dealing with getting the truck out of the drainage and diesel fuel leakage was coming from the truck, the roadways were closed in both directions.
