Accident injures one

Jan 09, 2013

A single-car accident near the top of Waynesville Mountain on U.S. 276 South sent the driver to the hospital at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Accident details were not released pending further investigation, but those at the scene said an elderly male was alone in the vehicle, which overturned, landing on its top.

An initial call for the MAMA helicopter and help in extricating the passenger were cancelled as those with the Haywood County Rescue Squad and Center Pigeon Fire Department were able to handle the scene.

Trooper Smith with the N.C. Highway Patrol will have details available tomorrow.
