The truck sank, but rescuers managed to pull the driver from the submerged vehicle. He was conscious when he was pulled from the water.

The victim was taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. There is no word on the driver’s condition.

A crane eventually removed the truck from the water.
