Car vs. Tree
Wallace Spring Rd, Statesville, NC
The original call advised of a single vehicle accident with 2 injured patients. When units arrived on the scene, the Honda Accord had come through a curve too fast, lost control and came over the centerline running off the road and hitting a ditch which turned the vehicle around backwards. The car slid about 75 feet before hitting a tree in the rear of the vehicle. The bumper was pushed in about 2 1/2 feet into the car. From witnesses, the driver was in the backseat, bleeding from the face and complaining of having shoulder pain. Both patients were ambulatory on the scene. Due to the mist and fog, the helicopter could not fly. Units from Troutman Fire & Rescue, Troutman Police, Iredell County EMS, Iredell County Sheriff Dept, and NC SHP responded to the scene.
