Vicksburg firefighter Ed Holman carries the Jaws of Life back to his fire truck Friday morning after he and emergency personnel freed Milton Robins, 51, 11213 Louisiana 73, Geismar, from the 1999 International log truck he had been driving. Robins was heading south on U.S. 61 North and had driven onto the Mississippi 3 ramp, heading toward International Paper, said Sgt. John Minor Jr. of the Mississippi Highway Patrol, when the truck flipped. Milton was trapped for about 15 minutes. He was taken to River Region Medical Center and transferred to University Medical Center in Jackson. He was in good condition Friday night, a UMC spokesman said.
