Crews with East Pierce Fire & Rescue were forced to cut open a pickup to rescue the driver following a wreck Friday near Buckley.

The crash occurred about 6 p.m. in the 26300 block of Sumner-Buckley Highway when the pickup ran into the back of a silage truck, firefighters said.

Crews closed the highway for about 30 minutes while they extracted the pickup’s driver.

“It required a fairly lengthy extrication to remove the drive,” battalion chief Jay Adams said.

The driver and passenger of the pickup were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, firefighters said.

The driver of the silage truck was not hurt.

Pierce County sheriff’s deputies are investigating the cause of the crash.
