Wreck on Dean Forest Road

Around 5pm yesterday, police say a dump truck slammed into the back of a mini van on Dean Forest Road, just north of Highway 80, trapping a toddler in the van. The Pooler Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to cut the roof off the van, so paramedics could reach the child.

Ambulances rushed three adults to the hospital and LifeStar airlifted the young child to Memorial Health.

Charges are pending.
