Man Dangles Off Overpass

BEAVERTON, Ore. – A man is in the hospital after his car dangled from an overpass this weekend.

Matthew Alan Hamilton spent an hour in his truck while hanging from a bridge in Beaverton. Rescue crews were able to use a basket to get the 38-year-old driver out before taking him to a local hospital.

The fire department attached one of its trucks to the dangling vehicle to keep it from falling to the ground. Hamilton was not seriously injured, but police said Hamilton was arrested for DUI and would be taken to jail when he leaves the hospital.
