Four people sustained personal injuries on the morning of November 7 when their vehicle ran off an embankment, overturned, and landed in a creek near Skibo Road and Pamalee Drive in Fayetteville, according to police.
Reports from the Fayetteville Police Department said that the accident took place around 3 a.m.
Four people were traveling in a Chevrolet Suburban that was exiting from Skibo Road onto Pamalee Drive, according to the report. The vehicle ran off the road and was airborne for 50 to 75 feet before landing in a small creek approximately 50 feet down an embankment, according to Fayetteville Fire Department Battalion Commander Eric Tipton.
Tipton said one woman was ejected from the vehicle and sustained injuries to her face, another woman was able to exit the vehicle and climb the embankment, and two men were trapped inside the SUV, which landed on its roof in 1 ½ feet of water. It took nearly 45 minutes to free them. They were lifted up the embankment it stretchers specially designed for use in search and rescue operations.
