BRAWLEY — Firefighters here used the Jaws of Life to extricate an Imperial Irrigation District employee from his work pickup this morning after he wrecked east of here.

Bryan King, 24, of Brawley was driving an IID truck south on Hastian Road near Jones Road just before 2 this morning when the pickup hit a dirt embankment and ran off the road, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Jose Salazar.

County fire Capt. Lon Hettinger said King's pickup went into a canal. He added King suffered minor to moderate injuries in the wreck.
