The driver of the Chrysler Pacifica was heading south on Bird Road nearing the Linne Road intersection when he veered to the left, crossing the northbound lane of the two-lane country road and careened into a front yard of a home on Bird Road
The car busted through chain link fences, leaving a trail of debris and car parts, before it flipped over, sliding to a stop on a berm bordering a field just feet away from ditch filled with water.
Tracy Fire Department and Defense Depot crews worked to free the driver, who was trapped in the driver’s compartment that crushed around him in the crash.
A helicopter landed in a field across the road and idled, waiting for the victim to be freed from the wreckage.
Crews took about half an hour to cut and pry the car away enough to slide the driver out the back of the car. He was taken to the helicopter and transported to a local hospital. He was conscious when crews took him to the hospital, but as of Friday morning there was no update as to his status. No one from the CHP was available to comment.
The road was reopened around 8 p.m., and California Highway Patrol officers began to investigate the crash.
