A truck hauling dirt down a steep portion of Southwest Upper Hall Street Wednesday morning left the road and tumbled down an embankment, coming to rest in a swimming pool and prompting a dramatic rescue of the driver, an official said.Portland Fire & Rescue Bureau rescuers scrambled down a hillside after the crash, reported at 8:49 a.m., to reach the driver’s cab which was partially submerged in pool water, said bureau spokeswoman Capt. Louisa Jones. While at least one rescuer held the driver’s head up from the water, others used the "jaws of life" to pry the damaged steering column from the center console which had pinned the driver inside the vehicle, Jones said.
