Man rescued from pinned truck on State Highway 71 near Austin airport

The driver was pinned after he lost control of his truck and flipped between two guardrails.

AUSTIN, Texas — A man was in surgery at Dell Seton Medical Center early Thursday morning after first responders rescued him from underneath his flipped pickup truck.

The man was pinned under his truck after he lost control while driving and flipped between two guardrails on westbound State Highway 71, right in front of the P. Terry's Burger Stand near the Austin airport.

The Austin Police Department said at around 5 a.m. that officers were in limbo when it came to cleaning up the crash because they were awaiting more information from Dell Seton.

All westbound lanes of SH 71 in the area were closed overnight.

No additional information is available at this time.
