Woman Critically Hurt In Cleveland Crash At Harrison Pike And Grove Avenue

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Bradley County EMS had a busy day on Tuesday. The day started out with an 18 wheeler crash on the interstate. Just before 4 p.m. there was a two-vehicle collision on Harrison Pike at Grove Avenue.

One vehicle reportedly entered Harrison Pike from Grove and was struck by another car. The impact was significant and the vehicle that was struck was a small pickup truck that flipped on its side.

Bradley County EMS responded two ambulances and a supervisor to the scene. When they arrived they found a 54-year-old female driver in the vehicle on its side unresponsive. The Cleveland Fire Department had to cut the roof off of the truck so EMS could remove the woman from the wreckage.

Due to the severity of suspected injury the paramedic in charge requested air medical to respond to the scene to fly the patient to Erlanger, a level one trauma center. Air Evac landed on scene in the parking lot at the nearby Dollar General Store Plaza on Grove Avenue.

Stan Clark of Bradley County EMS said, “Emergency responders literally never know what may occur from one moment to the next. This accident was the second major crash of the day and this was only first shift. Once again the Cleveland Fire Department did a great job. They secured the vehicle and removed the roof to get the patient out and ready for transport.”

The Cleveland Police Department is in charge of the investigation.

Roy Exum: Vin Scully’s Last Time

It is said that the opening paragraph of my favorite ode to baseball should be the centerpiece for the canon of sports literature. It was written by former commissioner Bart Giamatti in "The Green Fields of the Mind,” a most marvelous essay to the last day of the regular season in the major leagues. “It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in ... (click for more)
