Report of a car off the road and into the Yachats River at 5861 Yachats River Road.
9-1-1 dispatcher says resident of the home at 5861 Yachats River Road says the driver showed up at their door and asked for help. Driver is a male, bleeding a bit, his ear hurts and he’s soaking wet. He says he was the only one in the car.
Yachats Fire Chief Franie Petrick says the car is in about a foot and a half of water – does not appear to be leaking fluid. But that it’s critical they get a tow truck on scene as fast as possible to get it out of the river. Chief Petrick says to tell the tow truck driver to bring a very long cable.
Tow truck is coming from South Beach. Chief Petrick says she has just detected a fuel leak coming from the car.
