Seatbelts Prove Crucial In County Road 813 Vehicle Overturned Incident

VEHICLE OVERTURNS ON COUNTY ROAD 813, ENDS UP OFF ROADWAY IN A YARD. OCCUPANT UPSIDE DOWN, HELD IN PLACE BY SEATBELTS

Emergency responders have been dispatched to County Road 813 (towards the County Road 222 end).

The 911 caller indicated that a vehicle had left the asphalt of County Road 813 overturning into a residential yard.

This location is just past the Sardis Missionary Baptist Church; County Road 813 is a primary artery feeding the entrance into Smith Lake Park.

Personnel from Trimble Volunteer Fire Department and Logan Fire & Rescue are active at the address. A medical team with Cullman EMS and Sergeant Daniel Cummings from the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office have just arrived on scene.

The single female occupant was found in the overturned vehicle. She was conscious, dangling upside from the seatbelts.

Initially, it appears she is not severely injured. However, medical technicians are taking every precaution to extract her from the vehicle with the utmost care and gentility to avoid further injuries.

Air Evac Lifeteam has been called to the scene; fortunately, they will not be needed. Looks like the victim will be transported to Cullman Regional via ambulance for observation and further assessment.

Motorists in this area should steer clear and allow responders clear, safe space to work.

This incident proves the point about the lifesaving benefits of using safety restraints when behind the wheel.

We just spoke with Maurice Reynolds an experienced EMT with Logan Fire:

“This is one smart, lucky lady. She is smart for wearing the seat restraints, they may well have saved her from severe injury or death. This wreck could have been much worse.”
