Early on Crusade Sunday Morning, Monroe TWP Firefighters were dispatched to the Forestry near the Fire Tower for a car crash, involving a vehicle rolling over and down the embankment. Multiple units responded, searching the area. Eventually, a District 93 officer located the crash site on the opposite side of the Fire Tower, on the hill leading to the gun range. A small black SUV had left the roadway and went over the embankment, landing upside down. Three occupants were able to extricate themselves and climb up the hill. They reported climbing for over an hour before they reached the roadway and were able to make the 911 call. Two occupants had minor injuries and abrasions, and a third was uninjured and refused treatment. A small dog perished in the crash. The Clark County Sheriff Dept is investigating the crash.
The vehicle was completely hidden from the road, and about 200' down the hill. The occupants were very fortunate to be awake and alert enough to call for help and give at least a partial description of their location.
