E Mombo Rd

The call came in as vehicle rollover with ejection.  There was some confusion as to the number of patients and multiple ambulances were dispatched to the scene, and the helicopter requested.  After getting on scene, it was determined the driver was intoxicated and had been ejected.  After speaking with him, command advised that there was just one person in the vehicle.  The ambulance took him to the hospital and the helicopter was enroute to transport him to Charlotte.
