A water truck went off a remote, rural road and into a canyon in northern Napa County south of St. Helena Friday morning, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The incident was reported at 8:30 a.m. off Conn Creek Road by someone who heard screaming, according to the CHP.

The truck went 100 yards into a canyon and turned onto its side, trapping the driver, CHP officials said.

Napa County fire fighters had to carry the driver up a 250-foot embankment before he could be air lifted to the hospital.

His injuries are described as moderate to major.
