Quincy, FL - On January 1st at 12:23 P.M., Mount Pleasant Firefighters were dispatched to a motor vehicle crash reported as a single-vehicle rollover on Glory Road, just South of Shade Farm Road. While en route the Mount Pleasant Rescue requested that Greensboro Fire Rescue respond with an Engine based on the report for an overturned vehicle.
Upon arrival personnel found a single vehicle with extreme damage in a field well off of the roadway. Once Command was established, the scene was assessed and personnel found that a single occupant of the vehicle was out with the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office. The occupant was assessed by Gadsden EMS and transported to the hospital for treatment. A check of the vehicle was conducted once access was made and found that there were no other occupants.
Personnel remained to provide scene safety until the vehicle was loaded on the wrecker. The cause of the crash is still under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol.
