Brock Bottom Bridge is Scene of Another Crash

As the Scotland County Fire and Rescue truck rolled to a stop at the scene of a one-vehicle accident, a sheriffís deputy gave the firemen the signal to slow down. From the looks of the car sitting sideways in the middle of the Brock Bottom bridge, that was not a good sign.

But as it turns out, the firemen didnít need to use the Jaws of Life on the mangled 1990 Ford passenger vehicle, because the driver had exited the car on his own, with only minor injuries.

James E. VanWinkle, 50, of Ottumwa, IA, was southbound on Highway 15 when the accident occurred at 2:35 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17th. The vehicle struck the northwest side of the bridge. The impact crushed the passenger side of the vehicle, throwing the passenger door over the embankment into the creek bed below, and shoving the right side of the engine compartment into the passenger compartment, leaving the right side of the car completely open.

The vehicleís airbag prevented serious injury to VanWinkle, who was transported by Scotland County Ambulance to Scotland County Memorial Hospital for treatment of cuts and abrasions.

The impact ruptured the vehicleís fuel line, forcing the bridge to be closed for roughly 20 minutes while the car was safely removed.
