COBB COUNTY, Ga. (WSB-TV) -- A 91-year-old driver is thankful to be alive after his truck plunged off a bridge in East Cobb County.

Channel 2's Ross Cavitt and photographer Casey Nichols shot pictures of a white pickup truck overturned in a creek at Oak Lane and Casteel Road.

Authorities say the elderly man pulled out in front of another car and collided. The impact sent his pickup into the creek.

The 91-year-old man appears to be in stable condition. He was transported to a hospital.

Casteel Road is closed while crews remove the vehicle from the creek.

A hazardous materials crew is on site because oil is leaking into the creek.
