Staff reports

A car flipped on Bethel Church Road just before 6 a.m., breaking a utility pole and bringing down the lines onto the roadway.

The single-vehicle wreck occurred just before 6 a.m. just past the church.  

Fortunately, the driver of the vehicle was able to get out on her own and was not seriously injured.

Firefighters are working to clear the utility cables out of the roadway and the road is now back open.  .

About 30 minutes later, police and fire responded to a single-vehicle accident on Huffaker Road.

A vehicle ran off the roadway into a ditch.  

There were no serious injuries in that accident either.
