A man was hospitalized Wednesday morning after he was trapped in the back of a tanker truck in suburban Summit. The man was cleaning the tank when he passed out. He apparently was overcome by ethyl alcohol fumes.

The man was rescued and walked to an ambulance on his own power. He was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.

His injuries are not life-threatening.
