Albany-Emergency responders had to cut a man from his truck this morning after it collided with a car at the intersection of Palmyra and Seventh Avenue. 


      Witnesses say the truck was attempting to turn from Palmyra onto Seventh Avenue just after eight when it was struck broadside by the car.  The truck spun several times before rolling over. 

      Kelly Brennan is a first aid and CPR instructor and saw the crash unfold, she ran to make sure everyone was okay.  The truck had to be braced and fire fighters pried the trucks door open to free the man, he was placed in an ambulance and transported to the hospital. 

      The female driver was also checked for injuries.  Logs and other items from the trucks bed littered the street.
