Emergency crews work to free the driver of a truck after his brakes failed and he crashed into a field off Foothills Drive.

SPOKANE -- The driver of a water truck was pinned inside the cab for more than an hour after he crashed off Foothills Drive late Friday morning.

The truck reportedly was traveling down Foothills at approximately 50 miles-an-hour when the driver lost his brakes and drove off the road straight into a field.

The driver's leg was pinned inside the cab and he had to be extricated by emergency crews.

The truck was carrying 2,400 gallons of magnesium chloride used for de-icing in the winter and to keep dust down on dirt roads during the summer months.

There's no word yet as to whether or not any of that chemical spilled in the crash."
