Jasper man injured after driving under big rig
A Jasper man is recovering tonight after his car went under a big rig trailer.
The accident happened on Highway 63 east just east of FM 1738 about five miles outside of Jasper.
The truck driver was backing his truck and trailer into his driveway around 6 last night when a Camry driving west on 63 didn't stop and went under the trailer. The car then came out the other side with a large part if its roof torn off.
Firefighters worked to free the driver from the car. They say they were aided by the impact tearing back part of the car's roof.
Joe Nathan David from Jasper suffered serious injuries in the crash and was taken by helicopter to Christus Hospital Saint Elizabeth.
