One person was injured in a single vehicle rollover occurring on County Road 71 just across the Terrapin Creek Bridge on Sunday afternoon. A Spring Creek Fire Department Medic and a Mt. Weisner firefighter were among the first to arrive on the scene and assist the driver in getting out of the vehicle, a 2007 Chevrolet.
The victim, identified on the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency as Joy Pressley of Piedmont – was taken by Floyd EMS Medics to an area hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.
The Mt. Weisner Fire Department, Rescue Squad personnel, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and Alabama State Troopers all responded.
That accident remains under investigation by state troopers.
