One injured after vehicle rolls down hill, into a Bluefield yard

BLUEFIELD — An adult female had to be transported to Bluefield Regional Medical Center suffering from an apparent broken leg after the pickup truck she was riding in rolled off Cole Street Thursday and into the front yard of a residence.

“A female driver was going up this steep hill when her vehicle lost power and rolled backwards down the hill and into the yard,” Patrolman J.D. Shrewsbury of the Bluefield Police Department said. “The pickup is a straight drive and the hill is steep.”

Shrewsbury did not release the name of the driver, but said she is an adult from Richlands, Va.
