The car left the highway and struck a power pole.

Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services and Woodstock Fire and Rescue responded to an accident this afternoon, at approximately 2:30, on Highway 92 near the Wiley Bridge Road intersection.

Apparently, the driver of a Honda Accord was traveling westbound on Highway 92 when her car left the highway, struck a power pole and landed on its top.

The driver of the vehicle, a female who was born in 1963, was entrapped in the car and had to be extricated. According to firefighters on the scene, she had a compound open fracture to her right ankle and was complaining of knee pain, too.

Battalion Chief, Frankie Martinez, said that the driver was in stable condition and was being life-flighted to Atlanta Medical Center.

The westbound lane of Highway 92 was blocked until the wreckage was clear. The cause of the accident is currently under investigation by the Georgia State Patrol.
