A man was airlifted Thursday afternoon after a single vehicle crash in DeKalb County.

It happened just before 3 p.m. in the 300 Block of State Road 327 in Corunna.

56-year-old Kenneth Nickolson of Waterloo said he swerved to miss an object in the road, causing him to over correct, according to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department.

His truck then went off the road, hit a utility pole and went down an embankment. It rolled onto its top trapping Nickolson inside.

He was extricated and flown by Samaritan to Parkview Medical Center. Police say he sustained injuries to his head, chest and arm.
