“With the concern of it rolling on over to its top, we concentrated on stabilizing the vehicle so it would not move. We then cut the windshield, and a Baptist Memorial Hospital Paramedic/Supervisor spoke with the driver, who was assisted out of the SUV,” said Whiteside.

One person was transported to Baptist-Union County Hospital with what appeared at the time to be non-life threatening injuries.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation by New Albany Police officers.
