GREELEY, Colo. (KDVR) – A person became trapped inside a truck after it struck a parked car and hit a tree in early Sunday morning Greeley.

That person was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening leg injuries, according to Greeley Fire, but the truck was severely damaged.

The Greeley Fire Department said at 4:20 a.m., first responders were dispatched to the 1200 block of 4th Street after someone reported that a vehicle had crashed into a front door.

Upon arrival, crews found a late model Dodge pickup that had struck a parked car and a tree and came to rest in the front yard. The house was not involved.

GFD crews used multiple extrication tools to disentangle one patient whose legs were trapped in the heavily damaged vehicle.
