75-Year-Old Woman Killed In Bradley County Car Accident Wednesday Morning

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

One person was killed early Wednesday morning in a single vehicle accident in the 1600 block of Dry Valley Road, in northeast Bradley County. 

Bradley County Emergency Medical Service was notified of the accident at 5:22 a.m. Two ambulances and a shift commander responded. When they arrived, they found a car 20-30 feet from the roadway in a field on its top. It was unclear when the accident may have occurred. A bystander driving by found the accident and called authorities. 

When emergency responders arrived, they found the single occupant of the vehicle, a 75-year-old woman, approximately eight feet from the car on the ground. They were unsure if she had been ejected or was somehow able to exit on her own. 

The Charleston Fire Department and Bradley County Sheriff’s Department were first on the scene and began life saving efforts. The patient was transported to Sky Ridge Medical Center where she was pronounced dead. The accident is under investigation.

Roy Exum: Always Know The Facts

I adore the fact so many of America’s high school and college students are very active in our battle against violence in our schools but bemoan the fact that when you combine youth and ‘lack of experience’ they often are misguided and ill-informed.
