Driver airlifted after truck overturns in Bluffton

A man was taken by helicopter to a Savannah hospital after his truck overturned on May River Road at about 5 p.m. Monday, according to a Bluffton Township Fire District spokesman.

The man was trapped inside his Ford pickup after it flipped about a mile and a half west of Buckwalter Parkway, Capt. Randy Hunter said. Emergency crews extricated the man, whom Hunter said did not appear to have life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the wreck was still being investigated late Monday, he said.
