Wreck snarls traffic on West Innes

A woman has been freed from her car following a bad accident at West Innes and Craige streets this morning.
Information on the law enforcement scanner indicates her most serious injuries are from the waist down, where she was pinned by the dashboard.
According to a Post reporter on the scene, the accident involved a Ford F150 4-by-4 pickup hauling a trailer of lawn equipment and a Pontiac G6, a small sedan.
The pickup belongs to Ketner’s lawn service and was traveling on West Innes. The G6 was turning from Craige Street.
The reporter said the passenger side of the car was crushed.
The driver, who was pinned in, was freed after a long, careful effort. Rescue workers had to cut off the roof and work in a backboard in to get her out.
Some gasoline has leaked and the fire department was taking care of that.
Emergency officials have called for a helicopter, but neither Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center nor Carolinas Medical Center are flying today due to weather conditions.
When the car’s driver was freed, she was taken from the scene in an ambulance.
The extent of her injuries is unknown at this time, but she was conscious throughout.
