Pickup truck found in a tree

SHERWOOD, Oreg. -- Investigators in Oregon are trying to figure out how a pickup truck landed 10 feet up a tree.

The truck was spotted Sunday morning near a highway.

Authorities used heat sensors to make sure no one was inside.

They say it appears the truck had been empty for some time.

A towing company was called in to remove it.

"Pretty impressive. Had to have been going a high rate of speed, went through the ditch, hit a perfect ramp and to launch itself about ten feet up the tree and stay in the tree was pretty impressive," said Scott Gunderson, tow truck driver.

The 19-year-old driver was cited for hit-and-run and criminal mischief.

Just how the truck ended up in the tree remains unclear.
