Big Rig rolls, trapping driver

(35 year old Brawley man suffers major injuries)…Marco Samano was injured in a single vehicle collision Monday.

The California Highway Patrol says Samano was driving a big rig eastbound on Norrish Road, west of Webb Road at just before 1:00 Monday afternoon. The CHP says the rig drifted to the right and entered the dirt shoulder. The driver over-corrected his steering and the rig traveled across both traffic lanes before over-turning on the opposite dirt shoulder. The CHP says the rig came to rest on its roof, trapping the driver inside. The Brawley man was extracted from the wreckage by Imperial County Fire Department personnel. He was transported to El Centro Regional Medical Center for treatment of what was described as major injuries. The Highway Patrol says the investigation into the collision is continuing.
