Last updated 6/8/2020 at 4:49pm

An accident on Security Boulevard early this afternoon drew numerous emergency response vehicles and a helicopter to the scene. Security Fire Department tells us a garbage truck flipped into a drainage ditch along the road, trapping the driver underneath.

Emergency crews received assistance from a wrecker to lift the truck about 1.5 feet in order to extract him. He was transported by helicopter to a local hospital, where he is in critical condition, according to a co-worker.

The garbage truck, which later was removed from the scene via flatbed trailer, leaked some materials into the drainage system. Crews have been on scene to clean that up, a fire official said.
