A single car accident sent a 33 year old, female, Plymouth driver to an area hospital by ambulance. Police requested Medflight, but bad weather kept it grounded. Police closed the road at Rocky Hill Road and the Access Road midday. The State Police Accident Reconstruction Team has gathered its evidence and police have re-opened the road.
The car went over a guardrail in a famously dangerous section of the curving road near 159 State Road. An Isuzu Rodeo lay in a gully, on the left side of the road heading north, going downhill. In misty weather, it left the road, nearly destroyed a small portion of guardrail, went airborne, snapped a pine tree and landed in the gully more than 10 feet below.
Many pieces of fire equipment went to the scene, including two engines, a brush breaker and the rescue truck.
According to Plymouth Police Capt. John Rogers, the cause of the accident remains unknown as police continue the investigation. The identity of the driver and the hospital also remains unknown.
