Late Monday afternoon, Paris Fire Department responded to a major vehicle accident, which sent one person to the hospital. Two vehicles suffered front-end damage.
According to Paris fire reports, at about 6:50 p.m. Engine 3 and Rescue 1 were dispatched to the vehicle accident at the intersection of S.W. 7th Street and Sherman Street, where one patient was found unconscious on the ground next to one of the vehicles.
“Upon arrival, one patient was out of the Chevy walking around, and the other patient was laying on the ground next to the Nissan with bleeding on his face,” according to Paris fire.
While Rescue 1 unhooked battery cables and cleared debris, Engine 1 crews tended to the injured driver of the Nissan, who was then transported to the hospital, “and the driver of the Chevy refused transport.”
Crews were on scene for about 40 minutes.
