The Buncombe County Technical Rescue Team helped with an early morning accident in Henderson County. Troopers say a car went over an embankment just after 7 a.m. Thursday on Shumont Road. It traveled down about 175 feet.
It took a while for the rescue team to get the female driver out. Her son showed up on scene and talked about the need for safety improvements on the stretch of road. Authorities say she was hurt, but her injuries are not life threatening.
The accident is under investigation.
