A Pulaski woman received what police are calling life-threatening injuries Saturday when she was ejected from her truck during a wreck on Alum Spring Road.
According to Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. W. David, Rebecca Hurst was headed out of the town of Pulaski in a Chevrolet pickup truck when she apparently overcorrected after the truck dropped off the road. The vehicle appears to have “shot across” to the left side of the road and possibly rolled several times before coming to rest against trees at the top of an embankment.
Hurst was ejected and emergency workers found her at the base of the embankment in a dry creek bed when they arrived on the scene of the 8:53 a.m. wreck near Jordan’s Chapel Church.
Hurst had to be transported to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital by ambulance when Saturday’s high winds prevented a helicopter from airlifting her there.
The investigation is continuing, David said.
