1 Person Injured In Spring Creek Road Car Accident Wednesday Morning

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

One person was injured in a car accident on Wednesday morning. At approximately 9:47 a.m., East Ridge Fire/Rescue and Police responded to 935 Spring Creek Road in reference to a motor vehicle crash. When first responders arrived, they found a small sedan had driven off the terraced parking lot onto a second parked car below. The vehicle was perched between the terrace wall and the vehicle below. 

Firefighters quickly stabilized the vehicle and extricated the driver without further incident. Lifeguard EMS transported the patient to Park Ridge East Hospital with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

The driver told East Ridge traffic investigators that she was pulling into a parking space too quickly and was unable to stop. 

The other vehicles involved in the crash were unoccupied at the time of the incident.
