Single Car Accident Sends Woman to Hospital


Around 3:30 p.m. this afternoon emergency responders were dispatched to a single car accident on Highway 28 E., near Cedar Creek bridge in Scott County.

Sheriff Randy Shores stated that the woman left the roadway and into a wooded area, striking a tree. “If a state highway worker hadn’t seen her, she could have laid there for a while.”

The Waldron Fire Department and the Y City Fire Department used the jaws of life to free the woman. The infant was not injured, and was rescued from the vehicle by state highway workers.

The woman, whose name has not been released at this time, was flown to a Hot Springs hospital.
