Firefighters and EMS worked to free a man from a wrecked vehicle crunched under a semi truck on state Highway 1 just east of Ada Wednesday. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Rob Benedict said the driver of the pickup, 43-year-old Christopher Gillespie of Ardmore, was treated and released from a local hospital after he was freed by firefighters using hydraulic prying and cutting tools.
