Etna Cleanup

(WABI) – The accident happened at around 10:30 am.

State Police say that 50-year-old Kirk Boyington of Lincoln was driving an empty logging truck when he rammed another big rig from behind as it was being hauled by a wrecker.

The people in the wrecker were not hurt, but Boyington was trapped in the cab of his truck, which caught fire.

Rescue crews were able to snuff out the flames, and pry Boyington from the wreckage in the nick of time.

Boyington told police he saw the rig before he hit it, but didn’t realize it was traveling so slow.

He was taken to the hospital with a variety of injuries, but should be okay.
