SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Police said the driver of a pickup truck is lucky to be alive after a crash cut his vehicle in half.

Dylan Snipes lost control of his 2004 Chevy Silverado pickup truck early Saturday morning in Effingham County. Sheriff's office spokesman David Ehsanipoor said the truck flipped several times.

Emergency crews had to cut the driver from the wrecked truck. He was flown by helicopter to Memorial Health University Medical Center and is expected to survive.

The Georgia State Patrol is still investigating the crash. Authorities said alcohol was believed to be a factor in the accident.
