Three Rescued from Flipped Car

By news admin

Fire department and rescue squad members pulled three people out of a car that plunged headfirst down a bluff in Knoxville.
Knoxville Fire Department Capt. D.J. Corcoran says that the Jeep Wrangler was on an off-road trail when it dropped 40-45 feet and then flipped over, trapping all three occupants for about three hours on Wednesday morning.
They attempted to contact emergency responders by cell phone and rescuers had to follow tire tracks until they found the wreckage about a half-mile off the paved road.
The rescue team hoisted the vehicle's occupants one-by-one up in a basket and they were taken by ambulance to the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
The names and conditions of the patients were not immediately available.
