Vehicle Crash near the Coast Guard Station

9:45am  A car driving on SW Naterlin in Newport suddenly went over a cliff or embankment near the Coast Guard Station.  The car rolled.  Rescuers say there is a male driver with a dog in the car.  It’s likely the driver was seat belted in because it appears he survived going off the road and rolling down the embankment.

9:49am  Any photographs of the accident can be sent via cellphone to:  Dave@NewsLincolnCounty.com

9:56am  Rescue crews are removing the vehicle’s roof so they can get the driver out – and hopefully his dog as well.

10:07am  The driver has been safely pulled out of the wreckage.

10:10am It’s been determined that the driver was not terribly injured.  He’ll likely be taken to the local hospital to examine any wounds. 

10:12am  Newport Fire Chief noticed that the vehicle hit a light pole on its way down.  New pole on order.
