TRAFFIC ALERT: One WB lane of I-20 is now open in Clinton

Earlier, Wednesday afternoon AirCare landed on I-20 west near Clinton to transport a patient from a wreck.

According to our crew on the scene one person, a man, was in the white Chevrolet Cavalier.

It apparently rolled over and hit a tree. Crews had to use the 'jaws of life' to cut the victim out.

We are told he has head trauma and internal injuries.

Clinton Fire Chief Barry Burnside says that the victim was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. 

Clinton Fire and Rescue praised the MedCom system with UMC in quickly dispatching a helicopter to the scene.

The exact cause of the accident is still under investigation.
