Dixiana, SC (Paul Kirby) – First responders were dispatched to a report that a vehicle had flipped over in the curve near Nephron Pharmaceuticals on the 12th Street Extension before Old Wire Road early Wednesday morning. The call reporting the wreck came in about 5:40 a.m.
First arriving fire equipment reported that the car had left the road, flipped, and ejected a person from the passenger compartment. That person was trapped under the vehicle. Firefighters immediately closed the 12th Street Extension to give them a safe area to work as they lifted the car to check on the person underneath.
Lexington County EMS responded along with the fire crews. They had an advanced life support truck and a supervisor on scene. Law enforcement officers were also enroute to help redirect traffic. The area can be very busy at certain times of the day as Nephron or the Amazon Fulfillment Center changes shifts.
An ambulance has left the scene of the accident running to Prisma Health's Palmetto Richland Trauma Center with a patient on board. We will attempt to update this story as more information becomes available.
