Thomasville Police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a store, scaring customers and clerks.
Albany -- Traffic along State Route 300 was blocked for nearly two hours Saturday afternoon at the intersection of Clark Avenue while paramedics and firefighters worked carefully to remove 67-year-old Henry Wren who was trapped inside his Ford F-150.
"When I heard it bang, I came out here to see what was happening," said Joe Corker. He witnessed the crash from the Pilot station just across the street from where accident occurred.
He said that moments before Wren's truck struck the semi - it appeared the driver lost control of his vehicle.
"I seen the guy hit the sign down there. Then he came down here and knocked out the yellow stop sign. The next thing I know, he was stuck underneath the tractor trailer."
Police say after taking down two road signs, Wren's pickup then hit a Chevrolet Colorado before colliding into the back of a Stevens Transport semi driven by Robert Isom.
With the pickup's front-end impaled underneath the trailer, firefighters had use the "jaws of life" to cut Wren out of the vehicle. He escaped with serious injuries, but miraculously was still alive. Both the driver of the semi and the occupants of the Chevy Colorado were not seriously injured.
Wren was transported to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. No word on his condition.
