Woman injured in rollover

GLENWOOD — A 47-year-old Mercer County woman was transported to Bluefield Regional Medical Center following a single-vehicle rollover wreck Sunday evening on New Hope Road about one-half mile south of The Havens.

Lisa Stultz, of Princeton, was conscious, but was complaining of some injuries after running her late-model Ford Focus SE off the road to the right, traveling 80-90 feet off the road, then up a steep bank on the side of the road, jumping over a large rock and rolling about 30-35 feet down a steep embankment where it landed on its top in the ditch line beside the road, according to Deputy J.D. Gills of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department.

“When I arrived, she was partly out of the vehicle, but I don’t know if she got there herself or if she was assisted,” Gills said. “A firefighter with the Green Valley-Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department was helping her and two Good Samaritans who had stopped to help were able to extinguish a fire using dirt and water.”

Paramedics from the Bluefield and Princeton rescue squads arrived on scene along with a crash truck from the Princeton Rescue Squad. Several units of the Green Valley-Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department also responded. Emergency dispatchers with the Mercer County 911 Center made the initial page at 6:13 p.m.

“I didn’t see any injuries that were too severe,” Gills said. “She was complaining of pain in her abdomen.” The Bluefield Rescue Squad transported the victim to the county trauma center at Bluefield Regional Medical Center.

Shultz’s vehicle was filled with personal items including clothes and a flat screen TV. No other details were available late Sunday evening.
