On Sunday at 12:25 MCFD responded to a reported vehicle on the edge of an approximate 200 foot cliff above the Duck River on Greenfield Bend Rd in the Williamsport Community.

Detective Voss, with MCSO, had come upon the incident just after the elderly man ran off the road and was able to temporarily secure the vehicle with his own personal vehicle; however, every time the occupant let off the brake the vehicle began to slide further down the hill.

Units arrived and secured the truck with a chain to a large tree and used a winch to pull the vehicle further onto the roadway so the occupant could safely exit.

D and D Towing was requested to assist with the rescue if needed at the time of dispatch. They arrived just as units were ready to pull the vehicle.

After the occupant exited, D and D was able to completely pull the vehicle back onto the roadway.
