Shortly after this afternoon a vehicle northbound on Essen left the roadway between Margaret Anne and One Calais. The vehicle went down the embankment into the creek-bed of Ward’s Creek.

The vehicle was not submerged, but the driver had to be extricated from the vehicle.

The St. George Fire Department performed a technical rescue from the vehicle and delivered the patient to an EMS unit at the roadway.

The patient was transported to a local hospital. Any details of the accident or patient ID or condition must come from the appropriate law enforcement or EMS agency.
