JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A driver suffered life-threatening injuries in a crash Sunday night on Jacksonville's Northside, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

The crash happened near the intersection of Soutel Drive and Livingston Avenue just after 10 p.m.

Investigators said a pickup truck was heading down Soutel toward Lem Turner Road when the driver lost control and flipped the pickup into a yard.

Police said the driver was wedged under the truck and drivers had to get him out. Investigators said they found open alcohol containers inside the truck but also said it's unclear if the driver was intoxicated.

The exact cause of the crash is under investigation.
