Easonville Road in Cropwell was shut down for over an hour late last Thursday night due to a single vehicle accident.
On March 19, a young female driver was apparently eastbound on Easonville Road near Max Smith Road when the vehicle went out of control and climbed an embankment. It then flipped back onto the roadway coming to rest on its roof.
New London Volunteer Fire Department responded with three trucks and six firefighters to the scene. The driver was visibly shaken but did not appear to suffer any serious injuries. Regional Paramedical Services transported her to the hospital.
NLVFD Asst. Chief Toby Cline said the young lady was extremely lucky that her injuries were not more serious. “It could have been a lot worse,” he said. “We'll remain here until the wrecker removes the vehicle so that we can clear the roadway and check for the possibility of any haz-mat spills.”
Hank's Towing removed the totaled vehicle and the road was reopened about 11:30 p.m.
