CHINA GROVE — A woman was injured in a wreck Saturday when her SUV rolled over at the U.S. 29 bridge over Interstate 85 near C&C Mini Storage.
The motorist was thrown from the vehicle when it flipped. She was taken by ambulance to the China Grove Middle School football field where a MedCenter Air helicopter airlifted her to a trauma center.
MedCenter Air, the regional flight service for critically injured patients, is operated by Carolinas HealthCare System, which recently moved one of its helicopter units to Concord Regional Airport to transport patients in this area quickly.
Cindy Alley of An Image Captured Photography took photos after the accident, which happened around 6 p.m.
