Extrication situation

The Ford sits roadside behind the trash truck it was rammed into by a 2018 Ford three-quarter-ton truck.

 No one killed in exceptional traffic collision on Highway 39 near Aurora, Friday
Despite a gruesome scene, occupants of the crunched Ford F-150, shown, lived to tell about it, after being rear-ended into the back of a trash truck on Highway 39.
The multi-vehicle wreck occurred Friday, Jan. 10 one mile south of Aurora. A 1997 International commercial trash truck driven by Cody L. Wicker, 36, of Crane and a 2010 Ford F-150 driven by Trinket D. Foster, 55, of Crane were stopped in traffic waiting to make a left turn when a 2018 Ford F-250 driven by William F. Walton, 29, of Buffalo failed to yield and struck Foster in the rear. Foster then struck Wicker in the rear, causing Foster’s half-ton rig to crumble like a tin can into the back of the trash truck. Fortunately both occupants of Foster’s truck were wearing seatbelts, a decision that may have saved their lives.
The highway was temporarily closed for rescue crews. The occupants of the totaled 2010 Ford were trapped following the collision requiring crews to use extrication equipment to free them. Foster received serious injuries and her passenger Christopher R. Vincent, 31, Aurora, received moderate injuries. Walton was not wearing a seatbelt and received minor injuries.
