Man Airlifted Out Off OHV Park

A man has been airlifted out of the Chappie/Shasta Off-Highway-Vehicle Park after a crash and fire early Monday morning. At around 12:30AM, the victim's pickup went over an embankment in a very remote area northwest of Keswick. He told dispatchers he had been rammed and pushed over the side by another truck. The victim, known only as "Joe", was trapped in his pickup when it caught fire and said he had at least one broken leg and a back injury, but he managed to get himself out before the truck burned up. The fire spread to vegetation but went out on its own. Rescuers on quads located Joe and were carrying him out to an ambulance when his condition deteriorated and he had to be picked up by a helicopter at around 4AM.
