Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputy Wagner investigated a single vehicle crash this morning on Highway 5 North just South of the Highway 128 Junction.
Evidence at the scene showed that the vehicle exited the pavement , traveled across the rugged roadside, entered the flooded ditch and came to final rest in the ditch, partially submerged.
Fountain Lake Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly. They assisted the driver to walk back up to the pavement, took charge of traffic control and otherwise assisted as needed.
LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew to the scene. They met with the driver, but did not transport her to the hospital.
Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 2 hours.
