ROLLOVER ACCIDENT NEAR RIPSON BRIDGE SENDS MAN TO HOSPITAL
Shoal Creek Firefighters responded to the scene of a 4-wheeler rollover accident Tuesday, at around 5:00 p.m., near Ripson Bridge. Greenville Firefighters were dispatched to the accident for mutual aid. According to Greenville Fire Chief Bill Johnston, the victim was a male who lived near Ripson Bridge, who was pinned under the 4-wheeler. His wife reportedly heard him calling for help and called emergency personnel. The 4-wheeler had apparently tipped over going up an incline. Greenville Firefighters set up a landing zone for an Arch Helicopter which took the man to a St. Louis hospital.
