Early Morning Friday Crash Rushes Rescue Team – Helicopter Lands in HWY for Emergency UAMS FlightNovember 28th, 2009 by Joe Burgess
According to reports from the scene, the driver of this eastbound Volkswagon Jetta crossed the center line, into the path of the oncoming westbound Plymoth Voyager, causing a head-on collision.
SEEMS responded to aid the driver of the Voyager, and called for Air-Evac, an emergency helicopter transport, that has performed a training session with local emergency workers, but this is believed to be first “on scene” emergency pick-up in Drew County.
The victim was air-lifted to UAMS in Little Rock by chopper, from where it had landed, on the blocked off center line of HWY 278 East.
The driver of the Jetta was transported by MASI to Drew Memorial.
Triple A transported the Volkswagon, and J.A. Goad Towing removed the mini-van..
