Evidence at the scene showed that the Westbound Chevrolet Suburban exited the right side of the pavement while negotiating the curve.  The Suburban traveled West along the grassy roadside until it struck the embankment, rolled over, struck a large tree with the bottom of the windshield and came to final rest on it’s driver’s side with the tree embedded into the engine compartment area.  The driver was trapped under the dashboard.

ASP Trooper Sheldon took custody of a firearm that was found in the wreckage.

Lonsdale Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and went to work trying to free the trapped patient.  They worked for at least an hour before Morning Star Fire & Rescue Troops arrived to provide additional manpower.  The patient was cut from the vehicle, placed on a backboard, carried up the embankment and placed onto the stretcher.

LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew and the EMS Supervisor to the scene.  They transported the patient to the hospital by ambulance.

Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 2.5 hours.
