Rescuers Pull Driver from Truck in Water in Delaware County, SkyForce 10 Assists

Rescue crews worked to pull a person believed trapped in a vehicle in water in Delaware County.

SkyForce10 was over the scene and assisting rescuers as they worked to pull a driver from a pick-up truck in a marshy area of water in a creek that leads to the Delaware River around 12:30 Monday.

The area where the truck was submerged is along Stevens Road off off Route 291 in Tinicum Township.

Officials told NBC10 the driver was exiting from 95 North onto 291 when it seems he lost control. The truck struck a utility pole before plunging into the marshy water.

The man was rescued and taken to the hospital. There was no word on his condition.
