A man was airlifted from a Weld County Road Friday afternoon after his truck ran over his legs near the corner of WCR 84 and WCR 15.

The man was driving his pickup truck on WCR 84 around 4 p.m. when he realized something was wrong with his vehicle. Sgt. Sean Standridge of the Weld County Sheriff's Office said it's unclear whether one of his tires blew or locked up.
