Icy Bridge Lands Local Man In A Creek, Team Effort Pull Him To Safety

CROSS PLAINS TENNESSE: (Smokey Barn News) –  An icy bridge puts a local man in a creek Wednesday morning triggering a team effort rescue.

The crash occurred at the bridge on Roy Cole Rd at Owens Chapel, MAP, just before 8 am. A specialized “Stoked” rescue basket and ropes were used to pull the man up on the snow-covered hill to a waiting ambulance. Chief Tommy Jackson with Cross Plains Fire Department was the first to arrive along with RobCo Sheriff’s Dept followed by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

According to Robertson County EMS Director Brent Dyer, Robertson County EMS and EMA responded with additional manpower. Even local friends and neighbors of the man participated in the rescue. After a few minutes in the care of Robertson County EMS, the driver (with a little heat) quickly improved.  He was transported to TriStar NorthCrest Medical Center in Springfield in stable condition.

According to officials at the scene, icy road conditions coupled with the possibility of a medical emergency may have contributed to the crash.
