The driver of a semi truck that rolled over on Interstate 205 southbound in Vancouver Sunday morning had to be extricated from his vehicle and taken to an area hospital.

Three engines and one ladder truck from the Vancouver Fire Department were sent to the I-205 southbound exit to westbound Highway 14 for a semi-truck that had rolled over at 7:48 a.m. Sunday (June 6) morning. 

First arriving units found an unconscious man in the cab of the semi that was being taken care of by an off duty pararescueman from the 304th Rescue Squadron out of Portland, and an off-duty Portland firefighter. The driver was extricated by Vancouver firefighters and after about 25 minutes the man was freed from the semi and transported by AMR in critical condition. 

The accident is under investigation by Washington State Patrol.
