COLUMBIA — The Columbia Fire Department responded to a call about a rollover accident Monday afternoon.
When firefighters arrived at the bridge over Hinkson Creek on St. Charles Road, they found a white Dodge Ram upside down in the water just north of the bridge, according to a city news release. As they approached the vehicle, the driver, a 23-year-old woman, crawled out of the vehicle unharmed.
She was helped back up to the roadway, and she declined medical attention. The truck swerved off the road just before the bridge and landed on its roof in the creek, the release stated.
Another minor accident occurred on the scene when a Boone Hospital ambulance, Medic 111, collided with a Columbia Fire Department truck, Snozzle 1. There were no injuries and minor damages.
Columbia police closed St. Charles Road for about an hour and a half during the response and cleanup of the accident.
