A driver lost control of his vehicle and left Big Creek Road near the south end. The vehicle rolled off the road, and continued to roll downhill through the blackberry bushes. The driver is trapped in his vehicle and tells 9-1-1 dispatchers he is okay. He just can’t get out of his vehicle.
Newport Fire Chief Rob Murphy says the car has rolled about half way down the hill, which is quite a drop from the roadway.
Big Creek Road is closed at the south and north end near the picnic pavilion.
