HAGERMAN, Idaho (AP) -- A man was pulled from his burning pick-up truck by a sheriff's deputy and a passer-by in southern Idaho Friday.

The man, who has not been identified, was driving an older model truck on U.S. 30 south of Hagerman when it went over a 10-foot embankment.

The News-Times reports the doors were jammed shut but the windows were open. The truck and a nearby tree were on fire.

Sheriff's Sgt. Kelby Cornett and a witness pulled the man out of the burning wreckage.

The driver was taken by ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls. His identity and current condition are unknown.
