GALVESTON - Rescue personnel workws for almost an hour this morning freeing the driver from his pickup truck after it plunged over the edge of the Galveston Seawall to the rocks below.

The investigation at the scene indicated the late model pickup truck was headed in the wrong direction on a one-way portion of the 10300 block of Seawall at a high rate of speed when it hit a steel barricade.  The truck continued along the barricade for about 200 feet before going over the edge and crashing 20 feet below.

The truck, landed upright on the rocks, possibly sparing the driver's life, according to one police officer on the scene.
Signs on the doors of the truck identified it as Steeds Handyman Service

The driver was concious and talking with rescue personnel.  He had visible injuries to his face and arms and was taken by ambulance to UTMB for treatment.
