A driver had to be cut out of a van Tuesday afternoon after a collision on Baseline Road in Little Rock.

It happened about 1:30 p.m. on Baseline near Geyer Springs Road.

Police on scene said it appeared that the westbound van was attempting to turn left into a parking lot when it pulled into the path of an eastbound pickup.

The impact toppled the van onto its side, trapping the driver inside.

Firefighters used a Jaws of Life tool and a saw to cut away the top of the vehicle until it could be pulled off enough to free the driver.

The extent of the man's injuries wasn't known, but he was conscious and moving as crews strapped him into a stretcher and loaded him into an ambulance.
