The driver of a 1982 Silverado Chevrolet truck was taken to Floyd Medical Center with unknown injuries after he was involved in a wreck near the underpass on North Avenue Sunday at 3:28 p.m., according to Rome police officer Rick Robinson.
Perry McDonough, 76, of Rome was traveling westbound and struck the support wall that caused him to overturn and skid 75 feet before stopping.
McDonough was extracted by the Rome-Floyd Fire Department and Floyd EMS treated and transported him for severe lacerations on his left arm and other minor injuries.
At the intersection of Boyd Valley Road and Pleasant Valley Road, an unidentified 19-year-old woman was trapped in her green Honda Accord after it overturned in a ditch at approximately 4 p.m., according to Floyd County police officer Chad Matthews.
A winch helped secure the car as Rome-Floyd firefighters cut away the windshield and driver side door to extract the woman. She was treated on the scene by Floyd EMS and taken to FMC with unknown injuries.
