ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford man is recovering after being trapped between a SUV and a tree.
Around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday firefighters were called to a home in the 3500 block of Greendale Drive for a report of a man pinned under a vehicle. When rescue crews got to the scene they found the 44 year old man under the front end of a SUV with his legs trapped between a tree stump and vehicle.
Firefighters say it was difficult to rescue him because of ice and snow. The extraction took about 14 minutes. The victim was taken to St. Anthony Hospital with what firefighters are calling non-life threatening injuries.
