Rollover wreck on U.S. 380 West sends woman to hospital

Wrecks kept emergency responders busy Wednesday, with two major accidents taking place within a couple of hours.
At 1:08 p.m. March 29, a wreck with injuries was reported on U.S. 380 West at Bullock Road, which is about 9 miles northwest of Graham.
A woman driving a blue Ford Fusion eastbound appeared to have driven onto the shoulder on her side of the road, then overcorrected, causing her to lose control of her sedan. The car then crossed the center line, flew across a ditch on the westbound side of the road, and plowed through a barbed wire fence, landing upside down in a pasture.
She was taken by ambulance to Graham Regional Medical Center, then evacuated by air ambulance for further treatment. Her condition is unknown at this time, but her injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
A DPS Highway Patrol trooper, Graham EMS, Graham Fire Department, Young County Sheriff’s Office and County Fire were among those who responded to the wreck.
No further information on this accident was available at presstime Friday.
A little over three hours later, a three-vehicle wreck with injuries took place at the intersection of 4th and Elm in Graham.
