A Waycross woman was injured Sunday when the car she was driving vaulted end-over-end on Wadley Road about 10 p.m., said a Ware County Fire Department spokesman.
The woman, whose identity was not available from a skeleton law enforcement crew on Memorial Day, was taken by ambulance to Mayo Clinic Health System in Waycross for treatment, said Ware Fire Capt. Brian Varnadore.
Ware Fire Department personnel used the Hurst “Jaws-of-Life” extrication tool to cut the wreckage of the car away so Ware County Emergency Medical Technicians could get to her and render aid, said Varnadore.
“It took an hour and 10 minutes to get her out, the car was so messed up,” said Varnadore. “It appeared to have overturned end-over-end. There were no other vehicles involved.”
He had no validated report on her condition. He said she was treated locally and was not transferred.
The fire department crew were dispatched at 10:05 and arrived at 10:11 p.m., Varnadore said.
Rescue personnel from Ware County Station I in the industrial park and Emerson Park Fire Station responded to the scene to assist with the extrication.
Fire officials returned to their stations at one minute before midnight, Varnadore said.
